Avril, a German Angora, could wait no longer to get her abundant coat off and be cleaned up and have her nails clipped. She waited over the holidays and today was her day. See how dirty a bunny can get, though they rarely do. With the freezing days, she had to drink out of a dish instead of a bottle, and she is just messier.
She was clipped shingle style. I move the scissors up against the skin and turn it sideways so as to avoid the skin, which results in this shingle look. Scissor cuts instead of shearing also leaves more fiber on her during the cool season. She got rather impatient on her belly and she is rather choppy looking there.
And here is the beautiful fiber she grew for me to spin.
