Time for the Angoras bunnies, Billy and Ivar, to have a haircut. You have to shear them 4 times a year. Their fur grows about 1mm a day and as you can see on Billy, the grey one, they become extremely fluffy, and it starts matting up and eventually they can’t move and eat and clean themselves. Ivar was first, and here we have shorn most of him, there is some tricky parts around the butt and the front legs and neck left, then we all needed a bit of a break. 🙂
Here we have Ivar with Billy acting as cleaning crew.
Finished! We all did very good today, bunnies and humans! I know it’s not the prettiest haircut, but here we focus on getting the hair of, keeping all bunny parts on, and still do it as fast as possible. Success! Now he feels like warm velvet and is much happier and bouncier, and as you can see, Ivar is a pink bunny disguising as a white one.
Ivar is a sort of rare kind of bunny, a shoulder bunny! This is where he wants to be if you carry him around. And Angoras do have to be comfortable being handled and carried because of all the haircuts they need, so they are totally ok with that.
