What a fantastic turnout for our 2016 Open Show last weekend and there were some truly stunning ferrets competing for those coveted class wins and ultimately the Supreme Champion title. As head steward I had the privilege of watching our hard working judges as they scrutinised and deliberated over every ferret. I really didn’t envy them their job I can tell you. So, given the outstanding quality of ferrets on show I think everyone who was placed or won a class can be justifiably proud.
Special congratulations are in order for Ziggy and his young owner Jack Brimson on winning the Supreme Champion title and to Basil and his owner Neil Brant who was Reserve Champion. Well done too to Theodore, the winner of the day’s racing, and his proud owners Sue Riley and Alan Spencer.
Finally a big thank you to everyone from HBFC who worked so hard to make the whole day such a great success.
Here is the full list of results …
