What? Over 100? It's October!

Betty says,

It's hot on Thursday, it's in the high 90s most of the day and I was very surprised to learn that the highest temperature of the day was 100.    Then the forecast follows, it'll be 104 on Friday!

San Francisco is usually in the 60s all year round even during the summer, it's forecasted in the high 80s to low 90s for Friday, October 4. 

Is this a joke?  It's October!

Crowded Show Scene at Stockton

The Big Valley RA show is one of the major shows in the fall, early in the morning, exhibitors arrive to carve out a good spot.   Casey is arranging her English Angora inside a stall.

Betty's English Angora entries are also inside the stalls, her fiber exhibits are just outside the stalls.

Tammy from WA is working on her Giant Angora, all her rabbits are also inside the stall while the youth French Angora from NV are set up in the aisle.

Most of the good inside spots are taken and the rabbits are spilling outside the barn.
Inside the barn or at the edge of the barn, people and rabbits are everywhere.

Some rabbits are placed in the shade outside the barn.


Here is another view at the edge of the barn.

At the BBQ area and under the trees, there are rabbits and exhibitors.

Here is a view from outside the barn.

Fawntasy In Waiting


Fawntasy is a young English Angora senior doe.   She has been patiently waiting for her turn on the show table as her big sister Franchesca is still dominating the colored senior doe class.
