When Good Bunnies Go Bald

These little Astrex babies are a hoot! We came home from the show and three of our curly-haired babies are almost completely bald!

 

Although they’re really, really ugly right now because God made rabbits to have hair for a reason and that is that a hairless rabbit doubles as Stephen King’s muse, I’m excited to see how their new fur comes in. The hairlessness is apparently closely related to the curly gene in Astrex and I’ve heard a rumor a bald bunny comes in even curlier when that molt is finished.
Can’t wait to see.

 

In the meantime, just in case you need a few photos to haunt your dreams, here are a few before and after pictures I’ve found from our own rabbits and the Astrex Facebook group:

 

This photo is of Kojak, from Rainbow Rex Rabbitry. See how his hair grew back so nicely?!

This little beauty is from Soft Paws Haven and I'm hoping will come to our house in the next few weeks!
