Latest ferret show results!

We went to a ferret show on Sunday and I was amazed at the results! Alfie only went and won the title of 'reserve best in show' didn't he? I couldn't stop grinning! I am just so proud of him, especially as he is blind in one eye due to a cataract, which is very noticeable and is something that I had originally thought may hold him back, how wrong was I?
Alfie came first in the 'Albino hob' category, 3rd in 'veterans/disabled' and obviously was named 'reserve best in show'. Shiro came 2nd in the 'Albino hob' category and together they won the 'matching pairs' class.

Rosettes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places, reserve best in show and matching pairs. In the middle is the trophy for reserve best in show. Also pictured are two hammocks given as prizes. We also received certificates for each win. 

Showing them is just fun for us, we just have our ferrets as pets and members of the family, so it's really great when they win at these shows. They have only been to two so far but have come away with 8 rosettes and a trophy so far!
We have their rosettes hanging on the wall next to their cage and are going to put a shelf up soon for any other trophies they may win in the future. With them being only one year of age at the moment I'm thinking that we're going to need more space for rosettes!
