Grooming McKenzie


Betty is grooming McKenzie at the patio outside the showroom during the Napa show.   People are always fascinated that the English Angora is "so big, so fluffy, where are the eyes, where is the head, ..."  

With McKenzie being in the front and the blower on, it seems that McKenzie is bigger than Betty.
