Cavy Champions: Victors’ photos from the 2014 Specialty shows

12 Sep

This is perhaps a little behind the curve, but I figure it’s always better late than never. The following gallery includes 22 photos of some of the best show cavies in the nation — the Best of Breed animals from the 2014 ACBA Specialty shows in Monroe, Washington. You can think of Specialty as a sort of national championship for guinea pigs. Although it is smaller than the ARBA National show — the official national championship for both guinea pigs and rabbits — Specialty is the largest single event dedicated exclusively to cavies. The 2015 Specialty will take place in Berea, Ohio on April 10-12.

All photos included in the gallery below are credited to the Journal of the American Cavy Breeders Association. The gallery includes photos from both the open show and the youth show, but you might notice that there are only 22 photographs, where there should be a total of 26. Unfortunately, we’re missing a couple of photos. We did have all 13 breeds represented in the open show, and all breeds but the Peruvian satin were represented in the youth show. However, for the open show, the Best of Breed silkie and teddy satin are not pictured; for the youth show, the Best of Breed silkie satin and white crested are not pictured.
