Well come on you two. How'd the hairball show go? :pokeeye: Did either of you do any good after all those hours of driving?

Great to meet you and your family SixGun!
Here's a link to the Colorado shows. http://www.rmhshows.com/2017-show-calendar.html Maybe you can come see us again when it gets to hot down there to show this summer. :)

:) My little red FA got 3 out of 4 in the Jr class as she was "weak in the shoulders, has a small head, and is just too young to compete well with the older Jr does". (She's all of 13 weeks, I was more or less just happy for her to get some experience.) The Satin Angora REW doe got 1st Jr white doe as there was no competition, but got very high comments, not a negative thing to be said, but again, just too young to compete with the older buns. (15 weeks)

I'm happy with that. :)

I also got a new pair of SA, a black buck with the same build as my REW doe who's already a year if a bit on the small side, and a Lilac Chin doe, who just turned 5. She was all of $10 due to her age so if I get one litter from her and the buck before she stops producing I count that as a win. I just want to pass on those color genetics!

I'm sure Sixgun will pipe in with her results. It was fun to meet another RT member in person, and to scheme about trading kits this fall. Her broken doe that she showed sure is a nice little girl, and it was nice to hear that I'm not the only one who has a buck with a distinct 'personality'. :lol:

Oh.... What a trip!
We were the big winners, with a trip via ambulance to the ER!

But let me tell you about the rest of the trip first.

It was great to meet Homer enroute! Beautiful rabbit too!

15 hours of driving got us to the show. PSF was there to greet me, and thank goodness because I was a bit out of sorts. I've got to devise a better way to keep transports separate. I had PSFs phone number mixed up and I thought she was a transport I had missed.... I was so confused!

But after I finally orientated myself I was able to get to business. My buck was a stinker, and I swear his coat that was great two weeks ago was a huge mat yesterday. By the time I had him show ready I had at least 2oz of wool combed out. Grrrr.... Shoo, now he's mat free and lacking density in his coat. Not to mention his picky eating has him out of condition. Ever get to a show and wonder, "Why did I bring this rabbit?"

However, the new doe I bought took 2nd in her class of 15 in both show A & B. And my new REW buck took his class and BOV a couple times too. My newly turned senior doe, was awfully light, but placed in the middle of her class rather consistently.

So, it was getting very late and we had yet to start our specialty. We needed a scribe for the judge, so I volunteered, even though I was anxious to get on the road. We made it through English, French and were almost done with Satin when there's a report that one of the children playing had gotten hurt. Sure enough, my daughter had fallen and hit her head and supposedly lost consciousness. So, we kept her immobilized and called the ambulance. We went to the ER and had a CAT scan taken. No worries, she's good to go. No fractures, or bleeds, but she has a concussion. 4 years old. I don't think I had my first concussion until about 12. She's starting early, ugh!

So I don't know who took the Specialty, and I didn't get a chance to apologize to the judge. But my husband did get all the buns loaded up, met us at the hospital, and once little one was released from the hospital we continued on to Albuquerque. We got there this morning at 4:30. I took a quick nap as I had 9 rabbits to off load from transport at 7:30.

Then I took another nap, and now we're on our way home. Just another 6 hours of driving.

Oh no!!

Glad to hear she's okay, but that must have been terrifying! Poor thing. Hope the rest of your trip home is pleasantly uneventful.

Well, of course it snowed heavily last night as we were leaving Colorado. New Mexico has been soooo windy! Almost back in Arizona.... Weather is finally improving a tad. Hitting 70, versus the 30s and 40s of the last few hours.

It was so great to meet you PSF! We need to plan another meet soon!

There is a show in Lovington, NM in June. Thats about equi-distant for all of us to travel. Three Open shows. We'll get an AirBnB house to stay in, cost little to nothing for a couple night stay then.

Is there a catalog for that one yet? I couldn't find anything. I will have to think about that one, Loveland is the furthest I've gone for a show!! Hubs may think I've gone crazy... :)

I think ultimately that would come down to where the funding for our OR trip is and if there's any extra in the budget, but if there is, I might be able to make that work... :whistle:

Oh that's right, Oregon. I forgot.

Oh my goodness is it nice to be home! I slept like a rock. I feel so much more with it today!

June is a long ways away. Our next couple of shows are closer, in March and April. But if we go to the West Coast Classic in May.... I love rabbit shows.

Sounds like you guys had fun. Perhaps sometime I will come over to CO to show French Angoras. I instead went to WI last Saturday and picked up a buck for my doe. He is very young so will have to wait several months before I will have babies.

You should try for one! There were quite a few angoras for sale at this last show. I was surprised.
