New Cavy Variety of American Marten Accepted At Indy

Judge Ron has been a cavy judge forever and now also a rabbit judge. He is the presenter of the Cavy breed American Marten variety. After years and years of hard work, this variety passed the final showing and accepted into the Standard of Perfection as a new variety.

American is not a new breed but this Marten pattern is new. The key points are the pattern on the tummy and the face. This photo was taken with flashlight.

This photo was taken in natural light to give a better look at the same Marten cavy.

This is a close up shot of the face in natural light.

Family Time At Convention

The Indy convention is a memorable one for the Stepnoski family of PA; daddy Ray, Mommy Diana with two sisters Alex and Rehanna are all in the convention. This is Alex's first convention to compete in the open and her Giant Angora won Best Opposite Sex. Little sister Rehanna was crowned Cavy Queen of 2011 and her Texel cavy won BOB. Diana usually takes the girls to the shows by herself because Ray is out of town on business quite often but he was able to make this convention. They had a wonderful time at Indy.

Alex is having a pep talk with her English Angora colored senior doe just before judging. The pretty doe took 5th place out of 26 in the class, a very good showing.

Mommy Diana is also very proud of Rehanna too.
