Thanks for this wonderful description and intro into the world of showing Mice.
I must admit it has really opened my eyes and got me more excited now.
I am in the process of joining the NMC and have spoken to a few wonderful members already.
I would like to say as a newcomer how very informative and helpful this is.
I look forward to getting better mice and starting this thing properly.
I had a wonderful Dutch doe 10 years ago and wish I had bred her properly as to have kept that strain alive.
A question, Sarah - As you know, I am unable to attend shows. Would ther be any point in my joining the NMC? My long-hairs fall well short of show standards, but, once I get some of your beautiful foxes, I will have a second line which should result in some really good mice.
