More Scenes at Grand National

Grand National is a very well attended venue with lots of other activities. The show room is more than packed.

Lilianna and younger sister Chloeanna are side by side in their carriers. Their carriers are almost as big as the regular living cages of the smaller breeds but it seems that the carriers are still way too small to accommodate their big coats.

Chloeanna is taking a nap between going onto the judging table.

Chase is enjoying a piece of cracker.

Current judge Kevin S. and future judge Coleman C. with Lilianna.

Code owns one chocolate Satin Angora doe, he is entering the wonderful world of Angora.

Judge Justin is comparing Chloeanna and Lilianna for Best of Breed English Angora. New English Angora exhibitor Jennifer H. and new Satin Angora exhibitor Cody are watching intensely.

Lena Having Fun At Stockton

When Lena's mom Melissa is judging, Lena is playing with Betty's English Angora white buck Chase.

Chase has a reputation of being an attack rabbit on judge Carol but he is totally content with Lena feeding him a piece of granola bar.

Lena is fascinated with crafty things; she is holding on to a ball of Angora yarn when Betty and Carol are knitting in between shows.
