Hi everyone,

My name is Charles and I live in Rotterdam, Holland. I've been a Mousefancier member so far, but after a lot of "lurking" on this forum I felt that the forumintegration was a good moment to introduce myself and participate. I'm a member of the Dutch small rodent Club (NKV) and I have recently started to show my mice but they still need some working on...well pretty much everything. ;)

I have been breeding for four years now, Siamese Sealpoint, Himilayan, Colorpoint Beige and Extreme Black and this year I have taken up breeding Tricolor/Splashed which are from Roland Fisher (ChillOutAreaMousery) who is becoming more and more famous on both sides of the Atlantic... :) I picked them up at his house, and really, you should see people's faces when I tell them I drove for seven hours to pick up mice in another country :D

Try going 20 hours, sleeping in the car, and never leaving the country! :lol:

And the seven hours were 3.5 hours there and 3.5 back, heh, heh, heh, European countries are tiny....well, some of them are.
I travelled the US and Australia by car, man, talking about a culture shock..... :shock:

I sometimes wish I lived in a country which was small (small by my standards, hehe) like the UK or the Netherlands so I could travel to mouse shows more often. :p

That's part of the reason the US and Australia have different mouse cultures, even though we're all English-speaking, and why smaller, non-Anglophone countries like the Netherlands or Finland have mouse cultures more similar to the UK's, even though the language is not the same. In other words, you live close enough to have shows more than a few times a year! :p

It has it good things! By car it usually takes me 45 to 55 minutes to get to a rodent/mouseshow. Still, I don't visit them all (spoilt little me ;) ) It's funny that Holland and Finland have a relatively developed mouseculture but in countries like Belgium and France there are no shows at all....

I understood half of that just by reading it- i'm better than I thought! Mind you, it's quite similar to Afrikaans. But I find Afrikaans easier :)
