Dutch Cavy Club show report, Keighley

 

I was honoured to be asked to judge the Margaret Elward Memorial Show as this show has a special significance for me. First marking my twenty years in the fancy and secondly marking the 10th anniversary of the death of our friend and mentor Margaret.

Not a huge entry with only 22 pigs and 3 colours on display but some very nice exhibits nonetheless. By BIS was Alan Wilson's beautifully presented Red Adult Sow. This pig is very well marked and has good top colour and very good under colour which gave her the edge on the day. A very close 2nd was Amy Heale's Adult Chocolate Boar, a huge fit pig with very good markings. Other pigs of note all came from the 5/8 classes, again Amy with a Chocolate, and two Reds, one from Alan Wilson and the other from Chris Pearson, both of these pigs excel in colour. Best Juvenile was a Red 5/8 shown by K Bingham. My thanks to our hosts the Y.C.C. for looking after us judges so well, and many thanks to by book steward Sue Shurety.
