Fawndella Wins Best of Breed in A and B at Stockton

While Quintana and Rocher split the BOSB win, there is no doubt who the BOB is: Fawndella.

Fawndella definitely has the best type and a complete show coat.  Not only she wins the BOB, she goes on to win Reserve In Show in show A.

It's a joy to groom a rabbit like Fawndella.

Mama Betty wants to do a good job to present Fawndella to the judges.   

We thank Carolyn for the beautiful grooming pictures of Fawndella, Rocher and Quintana.
