  1. Beginners Goat Raising
    What are the pros and cons of fitting stand head pieces vs a milking head piece? Does one work better than the other for routine care, trimming, showing? I have boer goats and I am interested in possibly starting to show.
  2. Show Circuit
    So I want to show in the SCTGC show in May and I want to enter Clara. I have never participated in a dairy goat show, and i want to get into it! Question 1: I dont want to bring her alone, although, she wont be there for long. Can I bring her best buddy that isnt registerd just to keep her...
  3. Show Circuit
    @Jubillee I was looking on your website, and i came across the SCTDGC, and i was interested. So i went on their website and found out about the show! One of my 2020 goals is to enter my girl Clara into a show as a junior doe, just to see how we do. The 2019 show was in Brenham, which isn't too...
  4. Introductions
    Hi! I am new on here, at least new as a member, have been reading posts for awhile. I need some assistance in tattooing ADGA kids. I get the general 'gist' and have read the ADGA link on tattooing but it still doesn't make sense to me. For whatever reason, lol. So I was assigned a three...
  5. Show Circuit
    Hello! I'm going to a show on Monday that required scrapie tags and if I ordered them it would be $35 in shipping to get here by then. I was wondering if I can just use identification tags from the store? Wpuld they notice if my goat only had a identification tag? I literally need just 1 tag for...
  6. Show Circuit
    Hey, looking into the ADGA shows on thier website, there's not a single one in VA. Is it not updated? I know they are missing at least 1 show on their site because there is a buck show an Ameila county in a few weeks that is adga sancitioned, and I can think of a few others that were in...
  7. Show Circuit
    Ok so I was looking over the entry form for a show I am going to, and it says I need a scrapie tag. I have never seen a dairy goat (in show) with a scrapie tag, but I called to see where I can get one anyways. After many calls, I got nothing. I am extremely confused. So here are my questions...
  8. Show Circuit
    I am in my 3rd year of owning and breeding Nigerian Dwarf goats. I started with 2 of the best quality does that I could afford from Dixie Blossom Farm in Arkansas. I had them bred to Dixie Blossom bucks and got a total of 4 kids last year. I retained all of the kids (2 does and 2 bucks). I...
  9. 4H/FFA Corner
    This year I'm going to be showing for the first time at our fair at the end of July. I've been breeding goats with my dad for about five years now but I've never shown before so I have no clue how to prepare for a show. I have the goat that I'm going to be showing picked out and we're going to...
  10. Show Circuit
    (I posted this on the 4-H thread, then realized it should be here...) Whoo-Hoo! We just got back from the State Fair. My 14 year-old daughter just pulled her first ever 1st place in Showmanship and Fitting AND won the much coveted Sportsmanship Award (with it's delightful $50 bonus!). She...
  11. Show Circuit
    I have been raising Boers and have a decent sized herd. Lately, I have been thinking I would like to try showing. I have two awesome show quality doelings and a few more back-ups. One is registered. The other is commercial. Any suggestions of shows that would be good to start at that are close...
  12. Show Circuit
    I'm entering an upcoming show later this year in my local fair. I plan to enter a Nubian nanny. She'll hopefully be older than 6 months, but younger than a year. I plan to enter a showmanship class with her. Here are some of my questions, but if you'd like to add anything else that would be...
  13. Introductions
    I'm a new member of The Goat Spot. I am in 4-H and have had goats for a little over a year. My two goats' names are Lily and her half-sister Rose. They're both African Pygmies. My girls are companion animals only, but I do want a show/project animal. I know a good bit about goats in general, but...
  14. Meat Market
    OK so last year I started showing ABGA and found a digram of a Boer goat on here that had been photo shopped (has "paint" to show the different lengths to shave different areas) and it had what blade (color coded with the "paint" of Photoshop) to use on the different area like the tail, belly...
  15. Goat Management
    When Uhura has her kids at the end of the month, I want to start training them to set up and walk ASAP for a good show goat. How soon do you start training it to set up and HOW do you train it to set up? I really want to take one of these babies to the fair.
