Boo....because we had a great time! Even though we only got to stay one night, I think we had a pretty good weekend. We attended the MAAC Angora Specialty show, where Hershey picked up a leg (BOB) in Show A. Show B, she placed 2nd in her class. She lost out to Margaret Bartold’s beautiful tort doe...not too shabby, I’d say. Also...we picked up Cimmerian, a beautiful senior black buck from Margaret. He will be our herd buck. BUT, my favorite part (well worth the 8 hour drive by itself) was all the wonderful information and advice I got from Margaret and Randy(judge). She was so wonderful and patient while giving me grooming tips and angora advice. I got behind the judges table and received great hands on training. All the forums and emails and internet research does not take the place of quality one-on-one time with an expert. Thanks, Margaret and Randy! We had a wonderful time at the Kansas show and plan to go again next year. It would be cool to go up there with a group of Texas breeders. That’s definitely something to work on.
Now it’s off to groom the bunnies!
