UARC angora specialty show at Marietta

Somerhill Marinette won her championship yesterday at the UARC angora specialty show in Marietta. She first won best of breed, and then was selected Best in Show by judge Kevin Bogan. She and her mate, Gr CH Somerhill Nightshade, were selected as BOB and best opposite sex in the Jackson open FA show.
Thanks to Annette for this picture! Shown are the winners of the angora specialty.

Oh, how wonderful!!! Congrats Lisa, on two great wins! Marinette looks fabulous, and I will tell Holly and Ivy about brother's win too!

I wish I could have been there.

I wish you could have been there, too. :^( Nightshade was not supposed to win - he was only there as a filler and to get registered. but I realized after he went on the table that he really did look nice, even though he was not in full coat.

Wow, Lisa! What a wonderful idea for a BIS prize, and how creative for Annette to come up with this!

Congrats again on the wins and glad everyone had such a great time!:-)
