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 have shown: argente brun, Belgian hare, Britannia petite, dutch, English spot, Flemish giant, harlequin, Havana, Himalayan, Holland lop, jersey wooly, mini lop, mini rex, netherland dwarf, new Zealand, polish, standard chinchilla, tan, velveteen lop; American & coronet cavies; muffed ice pigeons, parlour tumblers, frillbacks; brahma, dutch chickens; cortunix quail

SableSteel,
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.
