Thanks for the compliments and good wishes! You have good judging skills also. The Friction is by far the better of the two calves, but the Shorty has a better shot at making the premium sale. The Friction will be thrown in with all European Breeds and the Shorty will compete only against other Shorties. The Shorty when fitted for the ring is also the flashiest. Thanks again, I will let you know how it turns out, they both show on Thursday 1-31-08.
