Some Showroom Scenes at Santa Rosa

The building is huge; though there are a lot of rabbits and exhibitors, it does not seem crowded.

Exhibitors are watching judge Manuel judging.   Judge Manuel is one of the very senior judges in CA.

The Angora corner has rabbits and wool products.  Jill is busy grooming her French Angora at the corner.


Rabbit show is a good family outing.   Adults and kids are fascinated by Angora yarn that are made from the rabbits.


Linda has her champion Norwich Terrier with her.

The pup looks up to his human, not interested in the camera.
