Gaby has a great weekend on April 21-22 in Ohio, she is sharing her wins with us.

In the second specialty show on Saturday, judge Mark awards the specialty BIS to GLAMZ Aspen. 

In show B of the Sunday all breed shows, judge Josh picks Aspen as the all breed Best In Show.

The Cream Brothers

We are the English Angora cream brothers.     What kind of cream are we?  We are chocolate cream, very yummy!   Our daddy is also a cream and our mommy is a chocolate tort.  Two of them together make us the most delicious bunnies ever.

How do you tell that we are cream but not fawn?  Look at our eyes.   We sort of look like fawn but our eyes are blue gray while the fawn has brown eyes; cream is the dilute of fawn.   We think our blue gray eyes are just so pretty.    Our daddy's name is Creamy Dreamy, should we be called Creamy Creamy and Dreamy Dreamy?

Angora National Entry Due

In 2013, the Angora National was held at Reno in conjunction with the West Coast Classic.
The photo above shows the four Best of Breed rabbits: from left to right are the Giant Angora, English Angora, French Angora and Satin Angora.   The French Angora took the Best In Show and the English Angora Reserve In Show.
This photo has been quite popular, it is used as the profile on the National Angora Rabbit Breeders Club website.  

We look forward to have another group of beautiful Angoras to the 2018 Angora National.   The entries are due today.
For the Angora National to be held on Saturday, send entries to Joyce Holliday
For the NCAG specialty shows on Friday night and Sunday, send entries to Betty Chu
For the WCC open all breed shows on Saturday and Sunday, send entries to Dolores Morris
For WCC youth all breed shows on Saturday and Sunday, send entries to Sarah Wright

Hope to see you all.

Book of World Records 2018 - Kids Version

Scholastic Inc. publishes various magazine, books, ... etc. for school kids.    I was gifted a copy by the company.


The photo of my English Angora white doe Chu's Ida is in the record book as "World's Fluffiest Rabbit". 
On one hand, I'm very happy to see my rabbit's photo being included in this kids' version of world record book, on the other hand, I'm quite disappointed that the printed information is not correct.   If the title is just "World's Fluffiest Rabbit" for the "Angora Rabbit", this would have been a nice page.  The written information, however, is a combination of Chu's Franchesca's Longest Fur record and Chu's Sweet Sixteen's first ARBA convention Best In Show.    Both of these two record holders are colored while Ida is white.   While Ida is a very pretty doe and has won all breed Best In Show a few times, she does not hold any record.   It's hoped that the next edition will put in the correct information.
