I am going to try to get better about tracking our show attendance and winnings, I seem to just collect the ribbons and file the legs. Not working out so well when I am confused on our standing with the Himalayan club. But either way we have a lot of fun as a family. <3
Since State we sent my favorite pair at the time -Hobbit and Jazkabor's Eden- to Mt Hood RBA show. Eden won her third Grand Championship leg and had an honorable mention for Best in Show! I didn't get to go, but I did get a cute bag to show off my win.
Crazy 8's show in May went smoothly for us, even though we took 2 breeds and and had 4 exhibitors in our family, and working the show! It was amazing, I feel so blessed by how well it went. We found a home for a sweet junior chocolate himalayan buck, and J sold his buck Oliver to a family we enjoy ( so he could grow out 3 of his daughters <3 )!
Before Crazy 8 even happened I found we ALSO had to send in entries to Oaks Park. Which is super fun for us and pretty close to home. We hadn't even discussed it yet, we only think one show at a time so we keep it fun and not overwhelming. But I found on FB one night after everyone had gone to bed, that I had ONE HOUR to turn it in! Wow it felt kind of awful, but I went ahead and entered the same rabbits as we did for Crazy 8. Luckily no was upset about going to this extra show. ;)
At Oak's Park, Cole's R34 Won Best of Breed show A, and show B was won by an animal with our beloved herd sire Sam on the pedigree! It was exciting to see them, they had made there way back up to Portland from West Coast Classic in Nevada! We sent 9 rabbits to go out to new homes from WCC the year before, they went all of the west half of the country. Sometime I hope to get to find out which animal those came from. As for now I am just so excited for our friend who bought them. Our kids entered the Youth show and while the little guys love to get Best of Breed and Best Opposite, my daughter prefers to have competition.
