    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 have a beautiful Blue Eyed Chamoise buckling from her available if you are interested
    His paternal grand dam is GCH Little Tots Estate 1*M the foundation Doe of our herd
    She apraised 91 VEEE
    He has a twin sister that we can already tell has better teat placement than her dam
    I'll make you a deal if you are going to get off the sideline and start showing your goats :)

    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!! :)

    Why are you quitting the little goats?

    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.

    I have about 50 little goats.
