Betty Grooming Her White English Angora




A nice white English Angora.



It's very nice of Bri who takes several photos of Betty grooming her white English Angora.



Though Betty grooms grooms and grooms in shows, there's not many photos of her grooming as she is usually the photographer.



On the right corner of the photo, some of Betty's Angora creations peek out from the cloud of white wool.


White bun says thanks to Bri of taking these nice photos.
