Mackie Gets His Hair Cut

Betty's handsome English Angora buck Chu's Mackie has appeared on this blog many times including but not limited to a post about his growing up:
At his prime he went to the ARBA convention at Fort Worth, Texas.
Betty grooming Mackie at the ARBA convention at Fort Worth, Texas.

At the convention, judge Deb Vecchio awards BOSB to Mackie.


No matter how handsome Mackie is, it's time for him to get a hair cut.

Mackie's back is exposed, doesn't it look like a pineapple?

Mackie wonders what's going on; "Mom, what are you doing to my beautiful coat?"

Is there a doe underneath?

Did You Miss the January Jamboree Show?

  Saturday, January 10, 2015,  driving on highway 29 into the world-famous Napa Valley wine country with vineyards after vineyards on both side of the road, exhibitors arrived at the Rutherford grange.    The sign says "January Jamboree" parking.  Really?  We are going to the January Jamboree show?   Isn't the January Jamboree show next weekend at Vallejo? 

January Jamboree show secretary Stephanie says, "Are we having the January Jamboree show today?"

See, this is the parking sign for the January Jamboree show.


You must have missed our show!!!

Don't worry, you did not miss the Sonoma-Marin RA January Jamboree show.  It's still to be held this coming Saturday January 17, 2015.      Why this sign?   Napa 4H holds the double open and double youth show at Rutherford on January 10 but the parking sign uses the name of the Sonoma-Marin RA's January Jamboree show.
