My dilutes - all dressed up, but no show.

Somerhill Hi-Jinx
Cream buck, 1 leg, registered. Several litters produced.  

Somerhill Tiddlywinks
Lilac tort doe, out of Hi-Jinx and Ti Kita.  Registered at
Springfield show.  Will be bred after the fall show season.
I went to the double show in Springfield on Sunday.  I had to leave by 3PM to make an appointment at the farm that evening, and angoras had STILL not been called to the table for either show.  But it was not a complete bust, since I did get Winky, Hemlock, and Moulin Rouge registered, and met someone at the show to deliver a SA junior doe.
There were 4 FA exhibitors, and one each SA and EA breeders there.  Met Jamie, a brand new SA owner, and watched as she taught Emily how to drop spindle.  And Maureen won Best in Show B with her English Angora - WOO HOO!
Next Saturday is the UARC angora specialty along with a double show at Marietta OH hosted by the Blennerhassett club.  There are several SA breeders coming to this show, so it will be FUN!   We should have all 4 angora breeds represented at this show.

Sorry you had to leave. I think we finally showed around 4?? Then BIS went off around 5:30 ish. Long, long day but I'm OK with sitting around doing nothing as I rarely get to do that. See you next week.
