If we had to choose between going to Gridley or Stockton, we would choose Gridley any day.
We had our best friends who are also raising some nice French angoras with us, so it was lots of fun. At the show, we met some other French angora youth. They had a beautifully colored buck—a self-chocolate, but he had a lot of reddish tint. My mom is still drooling over him. It was really fun to meet them, and we hope to see them at other shows.
Tootsie was way overweight, and Muddy just turned senior and was underweight. I didn’t want to spend money to enter them—even though they both had nice coats—and risk getting DQ’d. So I took Ninja who had very uneven coat, just so we’d have the numbers for getting two legs per show. Two significant things I learned this time—1. If rabbits are DQ’d for weight, it doesn’t take away from the count for legs, so I should have taken Muddy and Tootsie, because the judges sometimes don’t even notice the weight; 2. Senior does usually win best of breed.
