Cole is All Grown Up

At Dixon, Casey's son Cole, daughter-in-law Ashley and grand daughter Isaura came to visit.  

Cole almost grew up in rabbit shows; when Casey started raising English Angora in 1991, Cole was 5 years old.  For many years he tagged along to the shows until he was in high school and entered college.   Now he is married to Ashley and father to Assura.   He was only 2 years older than Assura when he started going to rabbit shows.

How time flies.

Crowded Showroom at Dixon

New club Solano RBA puts on the first show in 2016, just one day after the New Year.   
It's hard to imagine people would want to attend a rabbit show during the holidays but guess what, the show is so well attended the showroom is packed and the show committee has to add 3 more judges to the regular line up.

English Angora on the cage stands.

French Angora exhibitors chit chatting.

More French Angora.

Lops and Netherland Dwarf.
It really good for the club but quite difficult for the exhibitors when things are all crowded in.

Rabbits and people everywhere, it's hard to even walk through.
