Yarm Ferret Rescue January 2008

by Sue Lloyd

Yarm Ferret Rescue held it's annual fund-raising show on 7th Ocotober 2007. It was our best yet, with 177 ferrets entered of which about 70 ferrets belonged to regular exhibitors from the agricultural show circuit with most of the others responding to the mention we had in our local Evening Gazette. The hall was packed with pet ferret owners attending their first show and many returned home proudly clutching rosettes.

We had two unusual ferrets put in an appearance, one a gorgeous European Black and the other an Angora.

Many thanks to the catering team who never stopped all day, the stewards and to Nat who ran my sales table, virtually selling everything.

Gordon Peirson from the Whitby area judged ten of the classes with the lucky first prize winners receiving a bag of Vitalin Ferret, kindly sponsored by Vitalin, North Yorkshire whose sponsorship is greatly appreciated and which also means that with their free samples, eveyone can try out this popular ferret food.
