    What kind of animals do you show and how long have you been showing for. Pics are great so add those if you have any.
    I show dogs pigs horses and guinea pigs and I help my friend carry rabbits to the table.

    I have raised and shown cavies for the last 20 years on and off I started when I was little in 4-H. Currently I show Texels (last 5 years) which are a long curly coated breed as well as Peruvians another long haired breed. I was super excited to be able to attend the ARBA Convention this year and also so proud to get Best Of breed Texel.

    This guy is the Best of breed Texel for the Open 2009 ARBA Convention, he is now happily retired from show and has 3 girlfriends. Here is Bo:

    Here is a litter born not too long ago, I kept both babies, I just love them! The little girl, the one with a white blaze is named Fireflies. I haven't named brother yet.

    Quote:Those are two of my favorite three breeds. What do you use to transport them to and from shows?

    transport cages from KW cages, I guess it would be partially because im only half hour from KW but I don't know what else I would use if I wasn't??

    Quote:Lucky you live that close. I am 1/2 a day away. I was going to order some stuff today but I didn't have the money and today was free shipping. Are American satins a rare breed?

    Quote:Gorgeous cream Satin, I LOVE Satins. Something else I would take on if I had more cage space to devote to a breed. Im not sure I have seen one in cream before, I really like that color!!!!
