Betty Grooming during the Show at Lodi


Usually Betty is behind the camera taking pictures of the judges doing their job.   At Lodi, thanks to Carolyn, there are photos of her working on her rabbits to be judged.  On the table is her English Angora white senior buck Chu's Jake.   Jake is the BOSV at the ARBA convention at Fort Worth.

A close-up of Jake.   In the background are other English Angora and Betty's fiber creation.

On the grooming table is Chu's Mackie, Betty's English Angora colored senior buck that won the BOS at the ARBA convention.

Another picture of Betty working on Mackie.

Eric Gives a Cutting Demonstration

Eric believes that it's better and easier to grow a more proper French Angora coat if the baby coat is cut off around 10 weeks old.

Eric shows how to cut a baby French Angora.

Eric and Carol discusses the cutting process.


In addition to having a better textured coat, Eric also believes that it's easier to evaluate the body.

Melodye finds Eric's demonstration and instruction interesting and useful; would it work for Melodye's breed Jersey Wooly?
