But the reason you won't get past them is because they will be so excited to meet you for a fuss that they'll wake Sarah up :lol:

What an outstanding post. All beginners should read this through and fully digest it before even considering joining the NMC. What a credit to the fancy you are Sarah.

I have read this twice now and wow.... you worded it so well Sarah.
It really puts the hobby and the meaning of the hobby into a clear understanding of what its about with why and how ect... (especially with the inbreeding which some still think is a dirty word because they humanize it)

A while back I was one of them pet breeders that sold mice with "from show lines" on my adds.. I didn't intend to miss sell something but more sell better pets than the tiny stumpy mice that are regular seen but I can now see how this can be picked up by someone starting out with showing and them getting poor type mice. Your intro to showing helps people bypass this right to the correct mice that people should be getting for showing. :D


well done :D

Thank you everyone! I have edited the post today to add a glossary of breeding and show terms. I'll add more as I think of them.
