Showing Anatolians
We started showing our Anatolians when we purchased our boy Alec from Lost Horizons in California. Once the showing began with Alec my son, Christian and husband, Jim got involved. It has been such fun sharing this experience with my family. And much fun and excitement when you place those majors and onto finishing our first homebred Champions. The process continues keeping in mind that our Anatolian family is first and foremost our Livestock Guardians doing what they love best. Showing is for us family fun with our Anatolians and a wonderful chance to meet other Anatolian lovers.
