Jango got 3rd place!

I don't know why I hadn't posted this already; but back in mid-July, my youngest son, Dalton, entered his Mini-Rex, Jango, in a 4-H rabbit show and walked away with 3rd place. Had they broken the categories down like they normally do, he would have received 2nd place. They judged solids and broken in the same category, which I hadn't seen before. They did separate Bucks (Male) and Does (Female) as well as Juniors (less than 6 months old) and Seniors (older than 6 months old).  2nd place went to a solid and 1st to another broken. The judges remarks were that Jango was narrow in the shoulder and a little rough in coat. Good ears, head, and shape. He had been brushed, but evidently not enough.

Here we have Bailey holding Jango while Dalton combed him.

Jabba was going through a horrible molt and Bailey couldn't show him. But he helped a friend show one of their many rabbits and they let him keep the blue ribbon it received.
 This is what Jabba normally looks like.
