Carol's First Best In Show Win with a Mini Satin

Carol G has only started in Mini Satin for less than a year.   At the show in Utah, her Fuzzy Lop won three Best In Show out of four all breed shows.  In the last show of the weekend, her Mini Satin won the Best In Show.   From left to right are Nate, Carol, Hope and Todd.      Nate and Hope are Carol's Mini Satin partners and Todd is the judge who picked the Mini Satin as the Best In Show.

One interesting observation about this happy group is either Carol is really tiny or the other three are giants!

The team of Stuart/Nate/Carol/Kendall won every class in the shows.  There are 4 all breed shows and their Fuzzy Lop won all breed Best In Show in 3 of the all breed shows.  The remaining all breed BIS went to one of their Mini Satin. 

It's a rewarding weekend for Carol and family.   Look at the driving condition on their way home to California, snow in April!   Still it's all worth the trip.
