    Well, I can't show at all. Too far from town. maybe when I move to South Dakota, I'll start doing AGS and ADGA shows with my Nigerians. :type:

    Fair Results!

    The big-E was AWESOME!!!!!!!!!
    My goats did great. Actually...this is VERY weird. I was the ONLY person who had nigerian dwarves out of all the people that were at the big-e. It was sooo strange.
    Because I was the only one, one of my goats placed best of breed, senior champion nigie doe, best nigie milker, and i won two ribbons from ADGA. I even won herdsmanship out of all the 4-Hers from CT (there were like 38 of us). I placed 4th in the Senior A show (this is my first time...for everyone else it was their 2nd, 3rd or 4th) and I was the youngest. There were 16 people in the Senior A show. Then in fitting I placed 5th out of 16 in the Senior A group because the judge said that my goat's hair was too long (and i shaved her like just before the big-e). What does he want her to be...bald?!
    Well I'm really happy that I was able to go this year and I hope that next year more Nigerian people will be there (especially because i won't be able to represent the breed because I will be in college). It would have been much more fun with nigie competition!
