Old Log Cutters at Harvest Festival

There are displays of old log cutters at the Harvest Festival.

These guys really love their old machines.


This is a 1946 model log cutter by Farm Machinary Corporation.


This is a 1937 model of the log cutter by Montgomery Ward. 


A close up of the sign; Montgomery Ward had been in business for a long time from 1872 to its bankrutcy in 2001.


This is a part of the instruction displayed with the log cutters.


Another display of the functions of the log cutters.


The old machines are still functional with the help of the old parts.

Arie Visits from Indonesia

Arie is a well-known rabbit breeder in Indonesia.  When Judge Chris Z visited and judged in Indonesia earlier this year, Arie and judge Chris Z formed a close friendship.    Arie has taken the registrar's test and waiting for the result.   She has come to the US to be judge Chris Z's house guest.


Arie has a picture taken with Betty's English Angora white doe Chu's Jaylyn.   Jaylyn is the BOB winner in show A.


Arie is admiring the wool mittens.   The blue and white one on Arie's right hand is made of English Angora wool and the reddish one on Arie's left hand is made of Fuzzy Lop wool.  Arie is examining them closely to look for the difference.


Arie really likes the pair of natural color mitten made of Fuzzy Lop wool, she decides to buy the pair.

News just came in that Arie has passed the registrar's written examination.  She will start working in shows this coming weekend in So. CA.

Congratulations, Arie.

Youth Top Winners at Santa Rosa

Judges in show A and show B are in total agreement, Taylor's black Dutch wins double youth Best In Show at Santa Rosa.


It's very unusual but it's the fact, the same Californian shown by Blaine wins the double youth Reserve In Show; and even more unusual that Taylor and Blaine are brother and sister competing with each other and with all other youth exhibitors at Santa Rosa.
