We have so many shows in California that its possible to pack up bunnies and drive to a show nearly every weekend. But due to a convergence of real life and holidays, I hadn’t been to a rabbit show since early December. Well that changed last weekend. The Kern County Rabbit Breeders Association held their double open/youth show on Saturday, Jan 29 in Bakersfield, hired me as one of the judges, plus High Flying Fuzzies put on a specialty show for AFL. Yeah! Time to travel!
The sad part of this story is that even though I packed my camera and my new Flip video camera, I had a severe case of “no-photo-it is”, and pretty much left the picture gear untouched! GGGRRRRR. I hate it when I do that. Kendall even came with me to the show but she was so busy showing Fuzzies and her Thriantas while I judged, that she didn’t take pictures either.
At least I got one shot of the showroom and a few AFL exhibitors. Marian is wrestling the paperwork for the specialty show, while Pam and Anita peak over the coops. Jessica was at the show too, but she was the general show secretary and was very busy all day. Chris Z judged the specialty show and did a fantastic job.
Best of Breed in all three shows was Carol & Kendall Green’s broken buck, Christian, pictured here waiting for Show A Best in Show judging. Best Opposite of Breed was also owned by Carol & Kendall and was their solid doe, AK’s Vane.
It turned out to be a great day for Fuzzies! In show A, Randy S picked Christian as Reserve in Show. In Show B, Joe L picked Christian as Best in Show! Pretty exciting for Kendall and I. Christian seems less impressed!
