Show B Angora Judging at Vallejo

Judge Kendal works on the Satin Angora, Casey writes.

Judge Kendal checks on the ears.

Two pretty Satin Angora.

Judge Chris has a table full of French Angora colored senior does.

This is one of judge Chris's favorite French Angora does.

The last breed of Angora on the table is the English Angora.  By then the temperature in the show room is close to triple digit. 

Betty writes for judge Melissa.

The white junior doe is having a hard time taking the heat.  Interestingly, the full coated seniors are taking the heat much better than the juniors.  A full coat works as an insulation to fight the temperature change.

After the white English Angora are judged, Matt takes over writing for judge Melissa when the colored English Angora are on the table.    Us Angora exhibitors work well together, whoever can spare a moment takes the writing job.    Carolyn is helping to control the rabbits on the table. 


Judge Melissa likes the colored senior doe.

Wool Better Than Cotton

Kitty Cat has good taste, we totally agree "Cats would prefer WOOL" because us human not only prefer wool but also specifically Angora wool.
