Rabbit Showmanship - Yolo County

Rabbit Showmanship in Yolo County Calif 4H Fair
On Friday I was asked to help judge Rabbit Showmanship. Clockwise from upper left: Mini Lops are popular; 4H Novice shows rabbit to Judge Mike; 4H Junior shows rabbits teeth; Himalayan are very calm and a good choice for Showmanship rabbit.

Then on Saturday I came back to help with the Small Animal Master Showmanship Round Robin Competition. The top two winners from Dog, Chicken, Cavy/Guinea Pig, and Rabbit contest will compete in each species for Master Showmanship title. Picture clockwise from bottom: 4H member shows a Cavy to Judge Holly while at next table a member shows a chicken to a judge. Upper left a member shows a chicken, a member shows a rabbit, rabbit showmanship judge Franco looks a little like Jabba the Hut in this picture.

It was a good day!
