My 2013 judging started with a wonderful trip to California!!! I flew in a few days early and got to see San Francisco and Wine Country!! After two great days of doing "touristy" stuff I judged at the Sonoma-Marin RA show in Santa Rosa. I was honored to be selected to judge Open Best in Show for Show B. There were many outstanding animals but my top winners were an English Angora belonging to Betty Chu (BIS) and a Holland Lop belonging to Chris Zemny (RIS). The photo the left is me with my BIS and RIS winners!
In June of 2013 I traveled to Nova Scotia, Canada for my very first international judging assignment!! I had an amazing time!! Above are some of the photos from my trip :)
In July 2013 I was able to have yet another fantastic judging adventure!!!! I traveled to the west coast to judge at the Stanislaus County Fair!! During my week there I was also able to do a lot of "touristy" and fun things!!! We traveled to Nevada and I was able to see Lake Tahoe and travel through the Sierra Nevadas; which of course included a trip to see Donner Pass. I also got to see Clay Walker in concert!!! Lastly, I was able to bond with old rabbit friends, make new ones, and judge many wonderful showmanship participants and their rabbits!!! :) Above are some photos from the trip!!!! More can also be found on the "Photos" page :)
I am SO very excited to announce that I will be traveling to Indonesia this September to judge for the Indonesian Rabbit Society!!!! :) I am beyond thrilled for this opportunity and so excited to represent ARBA and be an ambassador for our hobby!! I look forward to seeing the country and meeting many new friends :)
Had a fabulous time judging at the Emerald Coast RBA's "Flip Flops and Fur" show in Panama City, FL in June 2016!!! I even got some beach time in :) Above are some photos from my trip!
