    I've never seen an angora rabbit I guess! I was like [​IMG]

    They look like footstools with heads! Cute though! How long is that hair? Do you ever shave them?

    Their kits were born early yesterday. I am waiting a bit to see their colors, though I am pretty sure a resessive gene has popped out a broken blue!!!

    What are the names of your proud new parents? And be sure to give your buck treats for a very special father's day! [​IMG]

    They look good. Are you coming to the ARBA show in Virgina City nest weekend? Where did you get your grooming table from?

    Quote:Actually their hair grows in three stages. Once the third stage is complete, you just pull it out and the first stage is there already at about 1 1/2 inches. They are rarely sheared. French and English angoras you can just pull, Germans need to be sheared.

    That's amazing! How do you know when the third stage is complete? It starts coming out on it's own? We have a mini rex. I have to think about how old he is now. 6 maybe? He goes through a large shed once a year, but nothing like this!

    Do you have photos of her in her shorter stage?
