This was the first Angora Nationals that Madi and I traveled to and it was definitely a trip that will be remembered! We had a chance to catch up with all of our extended Angora Family and our rabbits competed well on the tables too! My angoras did well in their classes and I went on to win a BIS with my Giant Angora Doe Showstopper and a RIS with my Pearl English Angora Sr Doe Jewel. Madi won several Best of Breeds with her Satin Angora Sr Doe and also several Best and Best opposite of Breeds with her Fuzzy lops in the All Breed New York State Show. Both Madi and I also competed in the Wool and garment comtest and won 1st placements in our classes. In addition to the show, there were also top photographers from the New York Times photographing English Angoras from many of the English Breeders to do a spead on the breed! Exciting weekend for the angoras!
Below is a portrait done by Alyssa Bowlby that my mom planned for a beautiful Easter gift for me. It consists of all of my animals that I worked with for my final 4-H project year. I even took all of the pictures myself and then Alyssa put them together into one special gift!
