It's dry at Reno, judge Josh is using a wet towel to help reduce the static.

The colored junior doe class attracts lots of spectators.

Satin Angora has a very good showing, there are more than 25 Satin Angoras on the table.

Though it's late in the evening, exhibitors and spectators are still intensely watching judge Josh working on the Satin Angora.
