    Took a leap of faith and put a 7 mo doe in a meat class. Nothing to lose...not much tail pigmentation, little color on ears or head. Nothing to lose. Long & level, good legs & everything else correcto mundo.
    She came out Reserve Grand!
    The other 4 we brought didnt do well but just being with other goat ppl was well worth it, I learned a whole lot..watched a couple penned next to us talking about all kinds of aspects of goat meat industry.

    Congratulations- that's great. Does do tend to grow more slowly and of course are usually not so muscled so she must be something else.

    Congratulations that is great news. Did you have to sell the goats? I know around here if they take Grand or Reserve, it has to be sold.

    Well golly gee PovertyBay, where do you live? Would have loved to meet you! Did you do barn M at all? We were next to the folks who made a virtual office in an extra pen and lots of colorful print-outs of their goaties on the wall.
    If you were watching Thurs I was the one who hollered to someone in the stands if she could help show. :shades:

    Poverty Bay=Federal Way.

    If you were the Boer shower in the Dairy section -- and "In it for the Doe"-- we *did* meet. Sort of. I was in the red/white/blue tie-dye tee and my friend and I spoke to you briefly a couple of times. We wondered about what "twist" meant.

    Okay! I gotcha! I don't remember you asking for help in the stands but I missed some of the show. I will be sure to say hey in the future. I think the other lady said she was from Spokane -- not Snohomish.

    Sorry for the late replies. Can't get on at work currently and I got hit with some extra shifts.
