    Day after I got George I put photos in the "meet George" post, looking at his colour there and here he's getting lighter the older he gets but his nose, ears, feet and tail are still very dark.

    So to start one of the pics from the "meet George" thread to compare to

    Now a pic from Tuesday slightly lighter

    And today's pics, a week after I got him and almost a completely new shade of grey.

    Hehe thats all I would say is grey but I'm tempted to say seal point as well. I know theres many names for the colours just curious if George is anything special or just plain old grey :p

    Its abit difficult to tell because looks like he's having a good moult! You'll have to wait until that dead coat its out, he's very cute! :)

    Thats the thing it doesn't look like he's moulting I know when the others moult theres fur everywhere and I get covered when I pick them up for a brush but with George hardly any fur comes off him. I can brush him and the brush will only have a few hairs in it, I don't have any on me when I've been holding him. Its just really odd how one day he's a dark grey the next he's starts going a silvery grey. Maybe someone swapped him for another bun.

    lol, maybe rosie loves him so much shes keeping him very clean, Himalayan buns change colour with different temps so maybe its a bit like that

    It may just be his coat, dreamer doesnt moult like my others, he goes really dark in patches and then goes back to the colour he was before, its great because he's the only one that doesnt cover me in fur everytime! :)

    He's a lovely bunny - and his colour is known as Siamese sable, or just Sable for short.

    Ah thanks, I've not heard of that colour before thats why I was thinking alone the lines of seal point. Also wondering what he's bred from tempted to say English Lop cross with something because of the shape of his face and his ears are quite long compared to other lops I've had.
