California is blessed with abundant rabbit and cavy activities. California also claims the title of having the highest number of rabbit and cavy judges. According the most current ARBA Year Book 2007-2008, there are 42 rabbit and cavy judges in CA. The state with the next highest number is Ohio with 34.
In CA, the most senior judge is Bruce, shown in the top photo; he is most senior in both the years of judging and age. He was one of the judges in the first show that Betty showed her first English Angora Angelina. All other judges in that show are no longer with us.
The most junior judge by age is Keelyn who received her judge's license at the tender age of 17; she is currently 18. She is the only judge who is still showing in the youth shows.
The most junior judge by the time of receiving the license is Allen. Allen received his license in October this year. He judged one show after receiving his license then left for Africa. We are looking forward to his return in January 2008.
