Default Sandhills Small Ruminant Association Summer Show

We attended a brand new ADGA dairy goat show hosted by the Sandhills Small Ruminant Association at the Carolina Horse Park in Raeford NC.
Excellent facility.

It was 2 rings, Sr's, Jr's and Bucks. They didn't sanction a champion challenge so no best of breed to compete for, so we left all of our finished does at home.

Worked out well for us though.

Our 6 year old doe One Fine Acre Chocolate Kiss 2*M was Grand Champion Sr. doe in both rings.
She is about as fine a doe in General Appearance, Dairy Strength and Body Capacity you will find.

She has great udder capacity and rear attachment but has always yielded a few points on teat placement and her fore udder doesn't blend smoothly.

Her Linear Appraisal score last year was 91 EEEV

She has always come up a little short in the ring to our other girls but this was her weekend.

Our 7 year old buck Madison's Meadow Rocky Road was Grand Champion in Ring 1.

Our 3 year old buck Sinai Thunder AD Valiant *B*S was Reserve Grand Champion in Ring 2.

So, now I've got a doe and buck with 2 legs. Going to look and see if any shows in the vicinity.

I'm giving away my last ND in a few weeks. Thanks for the offer though, if I was continuing with NDs I'd definitely jump on it. You have some amazing goats!!

It was a great new show! We loved the facility. Congrats on your wins! We had GCH Alpine sr. Doe, GCH & RCH jr. Doe and BJDIS in ring 2. Cameron in ring 1 didn't like our goats much lol

My ND doe got bred by my standard buck last year, she is amazing at jumping fences and I didn't realize in time. I just don't want to risk it again.
