Mini Convention started today, with conferences and being able to check in and coop your rabbits, so no showing today.
Tomorrow kicks off the showing, with national and specialty shows, including Holland Lop Nationals (which sadly, I missed the entry deadline for)! Also on Saturday are the youth contests! Something I am considering participating in (the youth breed ID and/or youth judging)! Then Sunday we have the all breed single show, and probably some other stuff I don't really know about (lol).
This will be my first time showing at Mini Convention, and my second time attending :D I am SO excited! Quinn will be picked up to go to her new home from Mini Convention, and Fonzie is being shown. I also want to buy a rabbit...the rabbit buying bug has bitten me!
Also CANNOT wait to see/meet some bunny friends!! I am bringing my best friend who has just recently started to get into rabbits, it's gonna be SO fun!
I hope to take lots of pictures to share later! If anyone wants to find me at the show on SUNDAY I'll be wearing a blue "Hollands Make Me Happy" t-shirt (and possibly a brown GAP hoodie), jeans and cowgirl boots, I WILL have cage tags on my coops too!! I will be attending Saturday but won't be wearing my standard show outfit or have any rabbits there yet ;)
Winning is great, but it's really just icing on the cake, in my personal opinion we show for comments, good times, and memories. Not saying winning is bad or anything, but I think we all should be a good looser and a humble winner, don't pout if you don't win (yes, I've heard/seen this happen before). Just a reminder as this is a big show, just HAVE FUN and enjoy it! At the end of the day, it's about what's improving YOUR herd, not ___'s herd! Everyone has different faults and strengths in their herds, and every judge has different opinions and looks for different things.
And again, at the end of the day, one of the most important things is loving your bunnies and caring for them well!
Anyways, lets make this a memorable mini convention!!! LETS DO THIS!
