Betty and Scott, 30 Years of Friendship

Whenever Betty and Scott see each other at the convention or at a show, we try to take a picture together.  This is the most recent picture taken during the Angora National banquet at Reno.  Scott is the judge for the Angora National.

This picture was taken in 1988 at the ARBA convention held in Madison, Wisconsin.   

Betty's blue doe was the BOB and Scott's white doe was the BOV in the open show at the ARBA convention.  Scott also won the BOB in the youth show with a different doe.   One may notice that the rabbits are very small comparing to today's English Angora.   The main reason is because the blower did not become a grooming tool until the end of 1989 during the ARBA convention at Tulsa, OK.   All the Angoras presented on the show table before November 1989 were groomed by slicker brushes and combs.   It's next to impossible to keep the coat longer than 5 inches.   You may now understand why "5 inches" is the advantage limit for length listed in the SOP.   

Scott and Betty at the Angora banquet during the 1988 ARBA convention.  Scott was 15 at the time, not even old enough to be in the high school.   Today he is a nationally known rabbit judge and professionally an attorney educated at Columbia University Law School.  It's hard not to be proud of his accomplishments.

    Its so cool to see how you have kept being friends all these years, and your guidance with Scott as a youth helped form him into the awesome judge he is now.
