The Emley show was a beautiful day and the hamster tent was very popular with the public who enjoyed seeing and talking about the hamsters. I enjoyed judging the syrians. Congratulations to the class winners and to Peerie Critter Hamstery who won BIS Syrian and Tristar Hamstery who won BIS Dwarf. The RBIS were Syrian Scorpio Syrians and Dwarf - Tommy Whitaker who also won the Junior awards.

Beautiful winners and reserves there Souffle. You picked a couple of crackers for the Syrians. BIS looks like s/he has a lovely calm temperament.

Missed another one! I wasn't free on the 4th anyway unfortunately. It looks like a great show and I love the colourings of the hamster sat on the blue rosette. The others are all gorgeous too

That looks like it was a great show with a nice turn out. I'm glad that you had such a wonderful time judging the Syrians. All hamster winners are absolutely gorgeous and very cute. That Mottled Campbell has an absolutely exquisite coloring and pattern; he really is extremely eye catching!!! Thanks for sharing these great pics with all of us. Btw, the Syrians look absolutely huge in their show cages. What is the largest sized Syrian that you have ever judged? Do Syrians acquire extra points if they are of a larger size or does it not matter in the judging criteria?

There are 10 points allocated for size Dreamtree. The standard states 'as large as possible' which is open to interpretation by the judge. As large as possible mean that the hamster should be large but correctly proportioned and correct to the type. It must not be fat or flabbly making it appear large. The body should feel firm and muscular with a slight waist. I guess the largest are around 300g but these are normally fat. A nice weight I would say is between 200 and 250g. Out of 10 I would award a smaller size 6.5 probably with an average size at 7.5 and a large correctly proportioned hamster 9.
Males are generally smaller than females and this is factored in. Certain colours often link to sizes eg creams tend to be larger and Dark greys on the smaller side.
