Chatting, Knitting and Grooming

Other than competition, the most important part of the shows is seeing old friends and making new ones.   At the wool breed corner, Lindsay and Jocelyn are having a chit chat while Casey looks on; Carol is more into knitting her scarf.


Betty, Lindsay and carol are chatting and grooming.

Those who are not used to seeing the English Angora being groomed are fascinated how relaxed the rabbit is.
