We’ve had our most exciting show experience yet – our 6/8 blue otter Satin doe won Best in Show yesterday!
For those of you who couldn’t care less about show adventures, the Best in Show happens when all of the rabbits who have been judged as best against their own breed (apples to apples) are placed in one last show and compete against one another for top honors (apples to oranges).
We had been talking about whether we should stay for the Best in Show and strongly considered leaving. But something made us stick around and… woo-hoo! It was worth it!
After pulling our jaws up off the floor, we were able to hunt down the ARBA judge, April Wilhour, and get her to take a picture with us. She did the bunny hypnotism thing and Beretta sat nice and still while I snapped the photo:
What a great day! Can’t wait to see how Beretta continues to stack up in the future!

Congratulations!! We’ve been up for BIS several times and have gotten a few honorable mentions but haven’t quite won top honors! How exciting! 🙂
Thanks! Pretty cool for us!
Those must be some awesome lines. Congrats!
Thanks! The litter mate of the doe we won with was a big winner at the West Coast classic. Wayne Good bred them – he has some gorgeous Satins and Mini Satins!
