Casey's Family Affair at Dixon

Dixon is only 10 miles from Vacaville where Casey and family reside.   It's a family affair at the show.   From left to right are Casey, son Cole and his girlfriend Melissa, and Cole's daughter and Casey's granddaughter Isaura.   
When Casey got her first pair of English Angora, Cole was 5 years old.  Casey started showing in 1992 with 6-year-old Cole in tow.  Cole stayed in shows with his own rabbits until he was in high school and eventually went off to college.   Now Isaura is following daddy's step going to shows at 6 years old.   What a life cycle.

Casey and her Satin Angora.

Satin Angora feels secure on mama Casey's shoulder.
