Youth Best In Show at Monterey

Cody with the two Mini Satin rabbits that won youth Best In Show at the CRCS shows. The rabbit in the left won BIS in show A and the one in the right won BIS in show B. Cody has just become an ARBA registrar, paving the road for his judge's license in a couple of years.

Big brother Justin is the owner of the two Mini Satin rabbits that won youth BIS. He was working at a fair when the CRCS shows were being held at Monterey. This picture was taken in April when his rabbit won youth Best In Show in the West Coast Classic show, also at Monterey. Justin will be taking his judge's license test in a couple of months and we are expecting another young and able judge in CA.
