Rose Garden show

December 15, 2012 was the date for this show at the Rose Garden in Nakhon Pathom, known to Thais as Suan Sam Pran after the town where it is. The show itself is a huge agricultural and livestock fair of which the cat show was but a small part, and I was alerted to it by Stephane Montelheit. Khun Istzy’s Khaomanee was grand champion.
