SCORBA Show on Sunday, Sept 20th

South Central Ohio RBA FIRST double show was in Washington Court House this past weekend.  It was a remarkable well run show, and we had a great time. There were 25 Satin Angoras shown. In Show A, Kim Martin had BOS With Somerhill Frisco, and NIkki Gaona had BOB with 4G Linda on my MInd. My Somerhill Malibu was 1st CSD (of six) and Annette Boose had first CJB with Lilac Haven Big Darby. Bob Swartz was the judge.  Also of note (to me) is that Somerhill Delamar, a black young junior doe, placed 2nd in a very competitive class of nine.  

In Show B, Jacinta Taulbee judged.  Kim won BOB with Somerhill Frisco, and Nikki won BOS with Ragtatter's Arya.
I also got 4 rabbits registered, so all my breeding stock is registered now.

In a mason jar with a lid, or some other small jar with a lid, squeeze in the lime juice, pour in the olive oil and mustard.
If you want, heat up the honey a bit before you add it in. This will make it easier to combine with the other ingredients.
Add the salt and pepper. You will probably want about ½ teaspoon of each.
Shake it well and drizzle it on your salad.
