Cyndie Wins Skein Contest
What a nice Sunday. After a lengthy heat, it has cooled down to the 70s/80s.
After receiving the good news from Charlie that his white boy won BIS at the fair in Ferndale, I received an e-mail from Cyndie Lenz sent me with photos.
She spent three days spinning and talking to people at the fair in Yreka. She entered 11 skeins of yarn, every one got either a first place or second place. She won the overall 'best hand spun yarn', the photo is on the right.
She also entered 14 photographs and got 9 first places, 3 seconds, 1 third, and 1 that didn't place.
Best In Show Wins
President of NCAG Charlie Lacey went to a fair in Ferndale, CA. today. There were two all breed shows. Charlie's white senior buck won Best In Show in both shows. I'll try to get Charlie to send me a photo so that I can post it.
Cyndie was commenting that we need some rabbit photos on our blog or it'll look like a club for hunters (remember the bear photo?). I thought readers will enjoy seeing the photos of my two pretty girls that won Best In Show in the two all breed shows on July 30. The picture on the left is Chu's Mercedes who is 7 months old. She won the Best In Show in show A. The picture on the right is Chu's Lexika who is 5-1/2 months old. She won the Best In Show in show B. To be honest, I was really pleasantly surprised by Lexika's win. It is not common for a junior English Angora to win Best of Breed, winning Best In Show is not something to be expected. However, I do have to say that she is one of the best rabbit that I have ever bred.
I hope I will be able to post Charlie's winning boy's picture real soon.
