    Notice from Todmorden :-
    TODMORDEN AGRICULTURAL - IMPORTANT INFO
    It's just been brought to my attention that some people have been calling my landline to book in, I haven't had this phone ring in a long time (entries are coming in but slowly via mobile)... it seems there's an error on my end... my landline isn't accepting incoming calls but is oddly allowing me to call out. So please, until further notice all entries to me on 07873929324 or samivogan@gmail.com or by personal inbox message only please.
    Due to this I shall extend entries until Sunday 11th of June at 11pm

Castor Rex

The Castor or Beaver was discovered in France in a litter of common table rabbits when it was found to be devoid of the long guard hairs carried by other breeds. The mutation was developed and eventually arrived in the UK in 1926 when cross breeding produced the glowing range of rex colours and patterns accepted today. The Castor's rich chestnut top contrasts with its sparkling white belly and underside of tail. Desired length in all rexes is approximately ½ in, coat should have a velvety plushness. There are two types: the standard (6-8 lbs - 2.72 - 3.62 kgs) or the Mini (3½ lbs to 4½ lbs - 1.587 - 2.041 kgs).
