It's the judging day. Judge Allen is the judge for Angora at the convention. He was contracted back in 2007 right after he received his judge's license, it's a 5-year wait to get him to judge.
The National Angora club advises exhibitors not to be close to the judging tables. These photos were taken at a distance; those who are watching all had to stand very far back thus not showing up in the photos.
The four breeds of Angora are judged in a rotating order. This year, the order was :Giant/Satin/English/French Angoras. Betty was busy grooming when the Giant Angora and Satin Angora were being judged. These photos were taken toward the end of Allen's judging of English Angora.
