Tired Caprice and Dru.
Caprice, Dru and Judge Frizell.
Caprice is the most layed back rabbit I have ever met. She lays in her cage with her feet sticking straight out behind her and a huge dust ruffle of wool sticking up like a hoop skirt. Nothing bothers her or phases her and that is why she makes such a good show bunny. She just loves showing and will just sit on her little carpet square (aka:the lucky carpet) and not move. She would sit in a natural pose all day long and not move a muscle if I asked her to. I never have to re-adjust her to a better pose, just sit her there, fluff a little and she does the rest. These are the bunnies that make the best show rabbits. It's just in their nature.
Caprice is shown above enjoying her winning BIS chair from the Hamburg Show B. I think she likes it because she went on to win Reserve in Show B at the Richmond show on Saturday. We were hoping to keep it in the family as Donna McGraw won a Double BIS with her beautiful GC Tulamores Lilliana, chestnut agouti EA senior doe, the previous December. But it was not to be. A beautiful blue tort Jersey Woolie, owned by Cher and Carrie of Rabbits of Harvest Moon, went on to win Richmond Double BIS. She was a show stopper! Not many woolies win BIS or RBIS in our area so it was exciting to see it stay in the wool family. Donna and I had a fun day, she got to sunbathe, while I was running around with two breeds on opposite tables. Oh, and I amost forgot in all the excitement, Shepherds Mystery( Self Senior Buck) won BOS Jersey Woolie in show B against a bunch of really nice bucks. We made the ride home go by really fast by talking the whole way home. What a fun show and the food it always great!
