    I am still learning all of this & I would eventually LOVE to start showing some of my Nigerians (once I learn more about conformation,etc). I am going to my first goat show :greengrin: in a couple weeks to watch how things are done in the ring.

    What do these things mean exactly???
    attachments?
    esecuthon(SP)?

    Any other important terms that I should know??? Are there any sites, etc. that any of you know about where i can learn some more about correct conformation, etc? Thanks everyone in advance for your help.

    I have a guess as to what attachments mean - is that how the udder attaches to the body?

    The esecuthon(sp) is the arch where the udder would attach on a doe. Same with a buck but no udder duh!
    I don't know how else to indicate it.

    Knowing the parts is a great way to get started, that way when you listening top the judge giving his/her reasons for placing a class you will know what they're talking about.
