More Photos from the Stockton Show on April 15

Cyndie went to visit her sister and parents after the shows in Stockton. She just made it home and sent us the photos she took at Stockton. We appreciate the extra pictures. Thank you, Cyndie.

At the top, we have the photo taken after the judging of Best In Show and Reserve In Show. As reported earlier, Emilia took Reserve In Show, but the Best In Show winner Carol G. with her American Fuzzy Lop was missing in action. Now we finally got the complete group with the two judges: Brooke on the left and Armando on the far right.

In the second photo, beautiful blue French Angora doe is telling everyone how proud she is. She should be, she is the French Angora Best of Breed winner . Her mom is Carol W.

In the third photo, we have lovely husband Franco holding the two winning Satin Angora that Tracy is showing. Franco is one of the most supportive husband we've seen. They truly are a lovely couple.

Lindsay and Casey

Angora people are always resourceful in shows and out of shows. In the recent shows in Orland, when waiting for the rabbits to get on the show table, Lindsay is busy spinning. In photo at the top, we see Lindsay's busy hands and happy face. Lindsay will be doing demo in the Middle Earth Festival at Vacaville tomorrow, Saturday April 22. She is busy getting her projects done to make a nice display.

Casey recently has had lasik surgery on both of her eyes. She is very happy with the result. She now can see far and read without eye glasses. In between two shows, Casey is reading an interesting book. Casey is also going to be a part of the Middle Earth Festival as Vacaville is her hometown. She will be spinning at the yarn shop that she does business with.

For those who live close to Vacaville, you may want to stop by to say hello to Lindsay and Casey.

Emilia Wins All Breed Reserve In Show Again

Emilia's retirement plan did not work out too well. The plan was for her to be going off the show table after February 18. In March, an invitation to Hollywood for the "I've Got A Secret" show put her back in the limelight. In the California Rabbit and Cavy Shows last Saturday, Emilia went back to the show table.

At 14 months old, she is still going strong. She wins the Best of Breed in both show A and show B. In show A, she goes on to win the Reserve In Show. Pictured here are Betty and judge Brooke.

The Secret Is Out

After reading the posts between March 30 and April 5, you may have guessed what Betty was reporting. She and Emilia went down to Hollywood for a taping of the game show "I've Got a Secret".

The show will start airing on Monday, April 17 on the Game Show Network (GSN) at 11:30 pm or 8:30 pm depending on the area. Which day will the show with Betty and Emilia be aired, well, it's still a secret. No one knows.

The center top photo shows Betty with the MC Bil Dwyer, and panelists in the front row from left to right are Jermaine Taylor, Suzanne Westernhoefer, Frank DeCaro and Bill Bean.

The second photo shows Betty with Gary Green, the producer who worked with Betty. The third photo shows the producing team Melissa, Gary, Julie and Betty with Emilia.

It was a fun day taping, hopefully you could catch the show.
