Default My First Ferret Show (with Murtagh!)

This past weekend, I went to my first ferret show in which I had a ferret entered (SHD's Murtagh Ale) I have been looking forward to this for AGES and we had a blast!!!

I drove down Friday after work, stayed the night, to be there in time for vet checks/check in from 8:00-9:30. I only entered in two classes, since its my first time and I was incredibly nervous. The first one was a specialty show (which judges more based on color and care) for Murtagh's color which is Black Roan Mitt (BRM). The second was Late Alter Championship, which is more based on the "whole" ferret, structure, care, color, coat, etc etc and has three rings/judges and all of the ferrets have to be seen by the 3. It started around 5ish and they didn't award the ribbons unitl 9

Murtagh placed 9th in the BRM specialty. He was amazing!! I am sooo excited about next year
Here's a pic of him and the ribbon
So, I don't have many pictures because I was so busy, but I do have some downloading right now


He did not place in the Late Alter class... but there were 50 ferrets in that class I do know the ferret that took second in one of the rings. Squee!!



Anyway... there were TONS of venders, I spent A LOT (lol big surprise there). I got to talk to and Murtagh's breeder for awhile, which is always awesome!! I got to see Murtagh babies.... Pearl-Murtagh2010 ... for anyone who wants to see Also, Murtagh's breeder (Scarlett), her jill took BIS!! VERY COOL to see!! And I'm afraid I'm rambling... so I'll just end it and post LOL

LOL I can't.... BUT Amanda is seriously considering a breeder kit, a jill. She wants a black sable...
I drug her around with me to the show and everything, and she's caught the bug. Easy to do, because I got it bad. Seriously considering going to Chicago for the next one

Thank You!!

I know, I want her!! I *think* she's going to be a breeder hold back, to see how she matures and all that. . .
I love how almost all of them have the nice, dark, nose. Murtagh has a spotted nose, which is acceptable, but the dark nose seems to be preferred. A couple of them look like they may have a "T" nose.

Barrett has a dark nose. Rascal has a half nose, Ren and Harley both have slightly spotted noses lol.

Honestly, I LOVE Rascals half nose, as do most people who meet him
