Charlotte and Lydia entered their two best junior rabbits in the angora specialties, the only ones they thought they'd have a chance of being competitive. And with open breeders who have been showing for decades, they were probably right.
But as their juniors were both less than four months old, they didn't plan on getting any legs with them. However, Charlotte was beyond thrilled to have Spook placed third, above Betty Chu's junior buck in two of the angora specialties. Can't get much better than that. Nice bunnies and nice girls.
Lydia's junior doe also did pretty well--she didn't place last among the junior does, so she was happy, too.

(So says the person whose camera batteries are dead.)
In other news, Charlotte sold one of her "water-damaged" bucks who is now growing out a fine coat and should do really well for his new owner, Kelly W., in the shows in Southern California. And Lydia sold Fudge. Fortunately, she is staying local so we shall be able to see her on the show tables occasionally. (I don't like it when my girls sell rabbits that have been here so long. It pulls at my heartstrings.)
