Judges At Rabbit Shows: Something You Should Know

First of all I must say that, an ethical ARBA registered judge will never decide to judge if his/her rabbits regardless of owners are competing in the show. This means that if there is a rabbit in the show what is bred and sold to someone, the breeder who happens to be a judge must not judge in that show. There should not be any room for favoritism even though a judge is known for his/her strong principles and ethics. They will normally not agree to judge based on their own conscience and beliefs. That is a trait worth respecting because after all, humans are weak and may be influenced to a certain extend.

And guess what? I have got word that one of the US breeders that sends rabbits here will be judging a show in Malaysia in near future. He/she is a very experienced show breeder but given the fact that this is just a fancy rabbit show and not a full fledged ARBA show, it is acceptable even though I believe he/she is not an ARBA judge.

But somehow I find it weird as he/she will be judging his/her own rabbits since there may be rabbits in the show that came from him/her. Oh well, this is Malaysia, the land of “Malaysia BOLEH (Malaysia CAN)!”. Anything can happen. Let’s simply put it that I prefer “CHANGE WE CAN BELIEVE IN”.

I wonder what happens in the US if the judge is indeed judging his/her own rabbits and insists to judge despite knowing the fact that there are rabbits from his/her breedings on the table. Let’s see what really happens in the show as it would be really interesting to watch. We better not be judging a rabbit show before the judge judges the rabbits.

But for now, I wish all RABBIT HELL breaks loose! Get those bunnies conditioned and ready for the SHOW!

    Here in the U.S. judges are not allowed to judge their own animals. And I believe some too, while judging pick lower class animals so their own have better chances on the Best in Show table for the title.

    If like that no point we coming from far just to enter one show.. that is for sure our rabbit will not judge the proper way. What a shame.
