Rhinelander Cutie

The Rhinelander is a "running" breed, this one is sure running.  At the right side, Judge Randy is teaching Stephanie about this breed.

The Rhinelander is full of expression.

Timmy is more known for his Jersey Wooly with his wife Danielle, but the Rhinelander is actually the first breed of rabbits that he started with.   Look at the one in the front, isn't it cute?

I am cute, I know I am cute!

 The building has several huge evaporative cooler and fans, exhibitors and rabbits were all very appreciative of Randy's kindness and enjoyed the coolness inside the building.

There had not been a show date since the Big Valley RA shows at Stockton on May 5.  Friends are so happy to see each other.

The judging tables are arranged in the middle of the building and exhibitors keep their rabbits around the either sides of the judging tables.
