    I took my two new PB alpines, who both have their 1st jr leg to the Alaska Dairy Goat Asso. 3 ring show yesterday ADGA

    My Doe didn't place in the Grand /Reserve class, but they all liked the bone, general appearance, feet and legs and her udder, though she's lacking a fore, and just needs to mature some more, she's a FF yearling. giving 1 gallon a day.

    My buck got Reserve Grand Champion AOP Bucks, he lost to a -very- nice lamancha. So I did get to bring home some nice big ribbons :D

    It was fun, mostly I helped out other breeders, talked with the judges, and had a good time. It started at 11am, and I left at 11pm, and they were finishing up the INBA Nubian Specialty.
