Art Yarn, Smooth Yarn

Betty is known for making art yarn.   Candy even coin the name for such style as "Betty yarn".

Actually Betty could spin smooth yarn too, just a little fatter and thicker than most lace-weight type of Angora yarn.

White English Angora Brother and Sister

Beckham is a handsome white buck, he follows his parents' tradition becoming a grand champion.  

Kendria is Beckham's littermate sister, she also achieves the grand champion status.

Both of their parents are colored.   Daddy Kenneth is a tort and mommy Fawntasy is a fawn, having them appearing in the litter means that both Kenneth and Fawntasy carry the albino gene "c".

Boys, Boys and Boys

On January 15, the three sons of Franchesca are photographed by the German TV reporters.  They are still juniors in this picture.

One and half months later, Franchesca's boys are seniors and here is Brodie.  

Here is Ryan.

And Stevens.

Betty says, the three boys look almost identical, I'd have to check their ear number each time I take them out for grooming or I'd be grooming the same one over and over!

German TV Galileo Big Pictures Features Betty's English Angora

A little rabbit is put into the magician's hat...
A fluffy big rabbit magically appears from the hat.  Who is that?

It's Franchesca!


Franchesca sits at the #1 spot with a crown on her head.

What is going on?

Believe it or not, here is another German TV video about Betty's English Angora.

German TV does an annual countdown about unusual happenings around the world in a show called "Galileo Big Pictures" or "Giganten".  The "Big Pictures" of 2015 has been aired in February 2016.  The program took a whole year of gathering information and making selection, only those considered as truly unusual made the final cut.  
Betty's English Angora featuring Franchesca is at countdown number 6.     
 This program did not fly in any reporter or photographer/videographer to do a shoot, instead, they use footages available from other news media outlets.   Barcroft UK and Splash USA are two of the media organizations that have videos and images of Betty and her English Angora for use through licensing agreements.    
The Barcroft footages were shot in October 2015 and we have seen the completed video earlier .   By then Franchesca has retired from shows and has become a mom twice already.    The footages are mostly about her beautiful daughters and handsome sons.  
The Splash USA sent journalist Brad Kava to shoot Franchesca during the CRCS show at Watsonville in July 2014.   
The photos and images are available for licensing to other media.   Giganten used quite a bit of it.    Franchesca was in prime then, the footages show her beautiful long wool that set the Guinness record not too long after the phote/video shoot.
It's a short video, hope you'll enjoy it.   The video is best to be viewed on a desktop computer, the videos uploaded to the BlogSpot site are not compatible with most tablets.
