In rabbit shows, one of the fun thing is to make friends, either within our own breeds or outside our own breeds.
French Lop breeders are always very close to us. They are very friendly and usually put on a wonderful lunch table that we could steal food from. And they are very talented. The first photo shows the three top breeders in Lops. Far left is Jeanne, the secretary of the national Lop club. She teaches quilt making and doll making, her products are top quality and uses some of the best material. Angora yarn is one of her choices to make dolls' hair. Jeanne's French Lop won the BOB in the ARBA convention in Indianapolis last October.
The middle is Lynn, who probably does more knitting than any of the Angora breeders/fiber people. She uses a lot of Angora yarn combined with other material to make original design items that sell for premium price. Lynn also teaches knitting. Lynn goes to shows with her mother Mary who is 80+ young but more energetic than any of us. They are shown in the second photo. Lynn is the chair of the ARBA Airline Committee, she works tirelessly to get the airlines to offer us better deals.
Both Lynn and Jeanne are top French Lop breeders.
The right is Tami, she has both French Lop and English Lop and does very well in shows. Our blog readers probably remember seeing her photo in December when her French Lop won the RIS. Tami loves to play with and to kiss English Angora. More photos of her with English Angora will be posted tomorrow.
