I was asked by our 4-H leader to show a young girl how to do showmanship. I basically gave my presentation. Showmanship just has to be practiced a lot.
And then our friends arrived. They brought some games for us to play, which we did, but Charlotte had to help with getting ready for judging. Then we looked at some of the prizes for Best in Show and Best Reserve, and so on.
Showmanship started around 10:30, and Charlotte wrote all about that on her post. There was also the hurdle contest, which we didn't do, but it is fun to watch. Then there was the costume contest. Finally, the showmanship results came. After that we started getting our rabbits groomed because the French angora would be up soon.
The rabbit judge was super slow, so finally we had to go to the cavy judge, because the other judge was still doing mini rexes and we were supposed to be out of the building. Ninja wasn't very good when the judge was trying to flip him. Then came Stanley. He was horrible. He was almost DQ'd because he hurt the judge. And then Maple was up. And then Remy, our friend's buck. The judge said that Maple was a little light, so he was in third. Then Remy was in second, and Stanley in first. Then Panda and Lola, our friends' junior does, were judged. Lola got Best of Breed. Stanley got Best Opposite.

Finally the rabbit judge finished with mini rexes and we were able to move on the Best in Show judging. The best French angora got mentioned by the judge in her final remarks, which we have never had happen. Then we packed up and left.
