HGF Doe on Fire Wins the 2018 Best of the Best Honor at WCC Reno

Eric and Gabe won Best In Show in open show A and show C with HGF Doe on Fire.

Eric and Gabe won Best In Show in the Angora National and Sunday Specialty Show with HGF Faun.

Both does are eligible to compete for the Best of the Best.  They have the option to put both does on the Best of the Best table to show the consistency of their rabbits but risk the votes being split,   They could also pick one of the two does to be in the Best of the Best competition.   Decision, decision, …

They decided to compete with HGF Doe on Fire and the result is:

Doe on Fire won the Best of Best with a decisive win.  Her vote was three times the vote of the second place rabbit.   

See video:

The video is over one hour, if you wish to see the voting and the final result, 
scroll to the last 10 minutes.

If anyone out there has good pictures of Eric, Gabe and Doe on Fire with 20+ judges after the completion of the Best of the Best judging, will appreciate send it to our blog for posting:      Eric and Gabe also will appreciate to see some of these photos.
