Default Otley Show pics

Sorry it has taken so long to post these.
I judged Syrians at the Otley show. It was a day of gorgeous sunshine follwed by lashing rain when our tent totally filled with the public admiring the hamsters. I enjoyed seeing lots of beautiful hammies and some real pretty ones too My Best in show was a gorgeous handsome Golden and Best Opposite sex was a LH Cream.


a lovely dove tort dominant spot rex LH lady!

Stunningly beautiful hamsters soufflé. Gorgeous winners but the dove tort girl is very pretty indeed. Don't envy you choosing!

They are chunky little ones

Is judging fun? I'd imagine it is, getting to look at all of those adorable fluffs!

Stunning photos. They really highlight just how big a well bred hamster is, too! I did think in that picture of the golden best in show male in the open cage next to the best opposite sex in her open cage "that could have been interesting if she was in season" - but I guess you can't bring a female who is in season to a show? I don't know, having never attended one.

There's something about that golden boy. I think he is just beautiful! And the long haired Rex female is so pretty.

Lovely photos Souffle! Thanks for sharing, it's very interesting to learn things about the shows.

Watching the photos I realize the terrible type that we have in Spain. They look "chubby and with a flattened face" to me... but I know that's how they should be, that's why they win, however I'm so used to see hamsters with a "ratty face" (with longer and thiner noses). I think the winners are adorable!

Aprilpearl I had the owners of the hamsters standing over them so they could not get near each other. I was very careful with them and they were sleepy heads at that time too!
It isn't uncommon to have females in season at shows. They often 'stand' on the judging grid but as they are all in individual pens it doesn't really matter. Most of the hamsters just sleep the day away at a show and wake for a nibble of their biscuit or veg now and again.
