What did you end up getting, or are interested in, SixGun? I'm down here in southern Arizona, and I know most of the big breeders here.

About the polish - some lines have the dwarf gene (most of the lines that I've seen in AZ) but some lines don't - theoretically the polish originally didn't have the dwarf gene, but it has been so interbred with ND over the years that most show quality polish you see have the dwarf gene. If you are interested in polish, I know a few great breeders in Arizona.

I ended up getting three French Angoras. I bought a nice buck from a vet in Tucson and bought two does from a great breeder in Denver. I'm going to stay with these guys for a while. I've entered the Tucson show in December. Maybe with showing and seeing and meeting people we'll expand to another breed, but, for now we're pretty happy with starting here.

"Governments, if they endure, always tend increasingly toward aristocratic forms. No government in history has been known to evade this pattern. And as the aristocracy develops, government tends more and more to act exclusively in the interests of the ruling class -- whether that class be hereditary royalty, oligarchs of financial empires, or entrenched bureaucracy."
