Vicki, Kelly, Dereck and Kari
One of the fun thing in the convention is to see old friends from all over the country and even out of the country. Here are some new and old friends in these two photos.
Three of them are from MN and one from SD.
From left to right are Vicki, Kelly, Dereck and Kari. Vicki and Kelly are the mother and daughter team who breed top English Angora. Kelly has won a youth Best In Show in the 1998 Portland convention with her gorgeous white English Angora white senior doe. The very right is Kari, a top Satin breeder. Kari won the Group in the Indy convention last year, then this year she won the Best of Breed again. As we all know, Satin has huge entries and there are more guys than gals in the breed. Kari's accomplishment is not to be taken lightly. Vicki, Kelly and Kari are from MN, and we meet up in the conventions each year.
Our reader may recall judge Dereck judging English Angora in Canada. Here is Dereck examining the English Angora from Vicki and Kelly. Dereck is a Satin breeder, but quite interested in knowing more about Angora. He is looking forward to judging a big Angora show in Wisconsin in the spring. Dereck is from SD and a new found friend in the Angora area.
