Secretaries report Jan. 2020
Had a great weekend at The Bradford again, hope everyone else also enjoyed it, thanks as always to Laura & the committee for all your hard work.
BOB Dwarf lop was my REW & BOB French was Maggie Smith’s Steel Butterfly, they came overall 2nd & 3rd respectively in the Lop Challenge, beaten by the Mini Lop of Forever & Solo Stud, well done to Susan & Jenny, who were best lop in the 3*young show with a REW Dwarf Lop which went on to win overall BIS, huge well done what a weekend they had !! A mention also to the orange dwarf lop of Elegante Stud, on the Sunday was Best lop in the International Stakes, eventually ending up 2nd overall, great to see an orange do so well, congratulations to the 3 girls, Jen, Julie & Nat.
AGM was held at Bradford as usual, main issues to come out of the meeting was that we are no longer paying out prize money at our stock shows & we are changing the wording for the steel colour in our breed standard, to allow the light steel colour to be included.
Stock shows all sorted for this year, first one is at Carlisle, Sunday, 8th March, Andrew Beasley judging. Then we have the Spring Stock show at the Southern Champs, Sunday 3rd May, Bill Brake judging.
Young stock show with adult support show as usual at the West Midlands Champs, Sunday 30th August, Jenny Carlile judging, London stock show, Saturday 10th October, Hazel Elliott judging. Last show of the year, the 3 age group Adult Stock show, will be held in conjunction with the Nat Mini 25th Anniversary show, Coventry, Sat 28th November & Garry Richardson will be our judge.
If you didn’t manage to catch me to pay subs at Bradford, you can contact me to pay by bank transfer or send a cheque, unfortunately I don’t do Paypal.
Hope to see some of you at Carlisle, Nat Mini & Northern lop also there, so a good show for the loppers!

We held the final stock show of the year in Manchester at the Bury/Radcliffe Show on 16th December, Christine Terry was our judge, not a huge entry, as of late, with 17 French & 20 dwarfs, just a couple of each breed absent on the day. Best dwarf lop & BIS was my REW adult &Best French, RUBIS was the agouti adult of Rossendale Stud, Best Junior in show Lucy Appleton with her REW dwarf, Well Done. Also well worthy of a mention, Congratulations to Lilybee Stud on winning their first BIS on the Bury show with a young agouti French doe.
Now that we have the ballot results the stock show judges have been sorted for this year :- March 10th Carlisle, Mona Cawdron, May 5th Southern Champs, Andrew Lipski, August 25th West Midlands Champs, YSS with adult support, Sarah Elliott, October 12th London Champs, Paula Atkinson & 17th November Worcester, ASS, Kevin Wakefield.
Hopefully the ballot results have been printed again in this edition of F&F due to the open panel results being missed off in the last one, in error.
Looking forwards to seeing you all at the shows in March & May.
