MAKING A POINT – South Side Sparks junior rabbit contestant Kendall Spurr shows rabbit judge Melody Henault that there are no problems with her bunny's ears during the showmanship competition.

Doug Horner of Noxon said the rabbit barn was full this year with 29 rabbits, including seven from 4-H, but his biggest thrill this year might have been that his daughter, Brianna Horner of the Trout Creek Mavericks took grand champion ribbons in the meat class with Twix and overall with KitKat.

The seven 4-H contestants were all juniors this year, including Brianna, who showed Comanche, and will compete in the senior division next year. There was also only one boy, Andrew Frank, of the Mavericks among the rabbit contestants. The judges, a mother and daughter team from Missoula, split the judging. Wendy McDaniel took the kids outside for their interview competition while her daughter, Melody Henault, took them through the showmanship portion.

Katherine Wrobleski and Virgil of the South Side Sparks nabbed the grand champion ribbon and Cooper Spurr was awarded the reserve championship with Mya. Wrobleski was also the reserve champion for best overall rabbit.

Horner, the barn superintendent for the last six years, said the kids had some good looking rabbits and did a nice job showing them.
