Grooming Annisha

Pretty English Angora don't remain pretty unless it's groomed regularly and carefully.

Even between judging, Betty grooms Annisha to make sure that everything is in pristine shape.

The English Angora is good natured to accept grooming and Annisha is no exception.

It takes quite a bit of equipment to accomplish the grooming task: a table, a turntable top, a blower, extension cords, baby powder, various brushes and combs, an empty tissue box to keep wool from flying everywhere, a spray water bottle, …  and a chair to sit on if the rabbit's underside needs work.
