Congratulations to Alan Timari of Canada for sweeping both national competitions for German Rollers in Canada as well as the USA! His birds are really quite exceptional!!!
This is the first time anyone became Champion of both countries in the same year. Mimmo Leoci of the DKB from Germany judged the Canadian National and American Judge Fred Probestal judged the German Rollers for NCBS.
Alan's winning team is offspring he raised from imported birds from Whitman stock from Germany.

Thanks so much Kristine!
Attention Bloggers: Can you help me? Unfortunately, my schedule was so busy that finding time to shoot the photos for the blog from the NCBS show was limited. I allowed time to shoot them at Noon on Saturday since noon would likely have less people admiring the winners and the show was open till 5 pm,
I was shocked that when I went in to take the pictures, the show stands were all down and exhibitors told me the winner display stands were taken down before 10 am! The entries are kept on tables with no display stands and exhibitors had also moved their birds to their area trying to make check out easier after the banquet around 10 pm that night.
So I have very few NCBS photos for the blog. Please share with us!

|Clear Yellow Cock Wins Best Border & Best In Show
He's showing better conformation now as the show season progresses.
Sometimes it takes a show or two to get these Borders to show themselves
to full potential.
Thanks so much for sharing with us!
On Sunday morning, we gathered for my seminar and discussion session. The text for my presentation is printed on this blog, search within the blog for 2014 Top Ten Border Breeding Tips. Afterward, John Furley presented me with this lovely engraved tray.
Right before the seminar, Tom Furley's daughter shared with me that she and her sister use to help their dad writing the e-mails to me and that Tom kept a file with copies of everyone of his e-mails and the response!
