    I'm literally in the ring of fire!!! 6 fires all over. started right by my house ( within 2 miles of my house) thankfully they are burning away from us. I do have many friends who i haven't heard from. especially in acton.

    the fair was "fun" because of all the fires too. the fair was hot and raining ash.. and we became the evacuation center while the fair was going.. so totally crazy with horses and such.

    on the brighter side, I did pretty well showing. My Red fullblood doe took 5th in a large aged doe class ( there was 9) my friend won reserve ch percentage doe. and her other goats all placed really high.

    demi got 5th out of a class of 11 junior does!!!!

    I also brought home another goat ( yes i KNOW i dont need more.. but she would have killed herself if i had left her, she really bonded with demi) she is a 50%. half nubian/ half boer and is a red paint. i dont know if i'll keep her for wether making or sell her.. we'll see

    I also sold rochelle's wether from june for 250 buck!! :clap: :clap: :leap: :leap: :stars: :stars: :wahoo: :wahoo:

    so its a topsy turvy weekend

    Oh my goodness! Great that you did well with your placings at the fair, but it does sound like it was chaotic with the fires so close. Your new doe sounds very pretty, can't wait to see her :wink: Stay safe and prayers sent that all involved with the fires are safe as well.
