OnlyOne of Wild Dreams, of Clan of Wild Dreams, owned by Melanie Speck, Germany
Wow, what a handsome fellow. He has a strong masculine build without excess fat. He has a nice well set head and eye shape and attractive fanning whiskers, his coat is plush and clean. He has a thick straight tail with a great tuft at the end. He is beautifully colored with a white coat and the polar fox soft gray ticking. He does look to have a molt line on his back. Beautifully posed and photographed, a real pleasure to judge.
Squirrel of Black Wolf Gerbils, owned by Jo Kelley, Colorado
Gorgeous male agouti with rich golden brown undercoat and strong ticking including on the ridgeline of the tail. He has a beautiful head shape that flows into a strong, masculine body and thick straight tail and some tuft. There is one molt line on the side and his feet have some coloring (ideally would be a brilliant white). This may indicate a younger male that will lose that feet coloring over time with successive molts. Well posed and photographed.
Thaissa of Waterfield, owned by Rumiko Küllsen, Germany
I like what I can see on the gerbil, but the side view angle makes it hard to judge her body shape and topline as she is angled toward the camera. Soft, plush coat, rich coloring, and very white, clean chest and belly. Paws are white, but there is some color in legs (ideally they would be all white). Eyes somewhat rounded, could have a bit more almond shape. Nice straight tail with some tuft showing at the end.
Chinchilla of Surf Shack Gerbils, owned by Calley Steelman, Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina
The coloring on this gerbil is stunning. The gray agouti ticking is even and strong, with a clear straight line of demarcation separating into a clean white belly and paws. Since she is in motion in the side view it is hard to judge her shape and the tail appears to taper somewhat rather than being tufty at the end. A dust bath to prepare her for the show would give her as softer coat (vs. greasy look) and could bring out the tuft. Keep showing!
