Farrah: New Grand Champion!
Farrah finished her Grand Championship this weekend with two Selects. This makes the 2012 XXX Litter the first smooth Ibizan litter from two best in field, grand champion, dual champion parents. This also makes the 2015 Fly Litter and the 2016 Double Litter two of the first Ibizan litters with two grand champion, dual champion parents! Farrah had retired from the show ring young and came out of retirement as a veteran to earn her grand championship. This is a big accomplishment for Farrah, as showing is not her favorite hobby, so I'm proud of Squee! She is officially retired from the show ring and will continue her coursing and racing careers.
