A copy-paste from behind the almighty F1:

"You can add movement to fur with attractors and dynamics. Using attractors, you manually keyframe fur movement. Using dynamics, you make the fur react to forces, for example, wind and gravity. You can also use dynamics to cause fur to react to movement of the attached surface, for example, as occurs when a dog shakes its hair."

Didn't dig any deeper on this issue tho...
