'Hare' Raising Fun At Fair

July 31, 2013

WAPAKONETA — Judges chose winners in the rabbit showmanship on Tuesday, looking at how well the showmen have taken care of and studied their rabbits.

Terry Fander, a rabbit judge, said judges look at breeds and body types in other categories, but showmanship is mostly based on the ability to handle and maintain control of the animal, along with what the competitor knows about the breed.
