Do you think I should try to encourage grooming or leave them to it?

I mean, you can if you feel it is necessary. I don’t think you need to, but it is up to you. The only time I groomed for bonding-sake was in the beginning, when they weren’t fully bonded. Nowadays, I groom both together when I want to cuddle with them so there’s no jealousy. Like W.W. says, humping can happen if too much attention is on one rabbit. I don’t think rabbits are textbook. Your pair will have a unique relationship with little quirks and annoyances, so I wouldn’t stress too much. In a perfect world, there would be equal grooming and no humping. The good thing is that your pair seem to have an understanding to snuggle at the end of it all
