Question about shedding

OK so Hagrid is shedding his Winter fur and it seems as if he wasn't brushed at the shelter. So I purchased a deshedder brush thing and I've been brushing him and brushing him but it just never seems to end. When he's finished shedding his Winter coat will I stop getting hair out with the deshedder? I'm afraid if I keep going I'll start pulling out his normal hair.

Thanks!

I always worry about the same thing. Last year I had bunnies with bald spots! It was such a bad shed. I think Penelope was bad because she had been in the SPCA for so long and had a lot of stress. Oliver and Ophelia may have been bad because they were just a year old. I am hoping this year is not nearly as bad.
Oh and someone here told me about using a horse stone on them. It works well.

Penelope - bunny
Teddy - bunny -ok I have given up on 4 of a kind and am willing to settle for 2 pairs.

Has anyone got a photo of a horse stone? I read about them before (I think on here) but still haven't found out what they look like.
