Hi! :) This is my first time showing. I have a collar already for showing but I don't know what else I should need to bring? I might seem stupid but I have "shower's block" (haha lol). And any tips about showing would be great! And deeply appreciated. Please help!

Just relax and have fun:)

Don't worry about messing up, you'll do fine.
Even if you do mess up, a good judge will know then animal no matter what.
I suggest bringing baby wipes to clean the booty and hooves. Also to get shavings or something off the body & keep it shiny:)
5 gallon buckets are always handy use it to sit on or put stuff in.
Can't think of anything else off the top of my head but have fun & let us know how you do!!

Do you know how to set up a goat during show? Have you practiced walking this goat? Can you and the goat execute a turn keeping the goat between you and the judge?
Sounds like "things" to bring may be the least of your concerns. Hope I'm wrong!
