Home from the AGS Mid West Show

Tag: Champion, Mid West, Show

Traveling out to the Mid West Gerbil show was a long trip. Along the way, we stopped at Niagara Falls, visited an aviary, and a zoo!

This was also my first show as a probationary judge. I learned a lot from being able to handle 30 gerbils that weren't my own. I've gotten very used to my own gerbils, its hard to believe that gerbils would behave any other way. I was impressed by the many spectacular gerbils that were on the show floor. There was  a beautiful nutmeg female with rich oily black ticking. She would have been a show stopper if she had a personality to match.

Many of my gerbils did very well in the show. Two gerbils compeleted their Championships.

MS's Titan, a mottled black male, took 1st in Senior. I've been toteing that boy around the country almost all his life, he's probably got 11,000 miles under his belt (or 17000 km). 
MS's Goldenrod also compelteted his championship, on a much quicker time line. He's a very richly colored Dark Eyed Honey. Real sweetheart too. He's just  a touch small.

MS'sMarble, a mottled black female, took BOS  in Mottled. She was very close to taking home Best Oppisite Sex for the show, but was beaten out by an exceptional CP Nutmeg female. The next show is just around the corner in January, where i hope she will be earning her own title.

MS's Quicksilver, a siamese, took second place in Non-Burmese Colorpoint.
MS's Mercury took 3rd place in the Burmese portion of colorpoint. (older pic)
MS's Skywalker, a red eyed schimmel, took second in Other.
MS's Spray Paint, another mottled black, took 1st in the mottled class. He was a bit of a surprise for me. He's not a very big male, but for his size he's very well built.(pic is from when he was younger)
