Thank you :)

It's a learning thing :) I love to watch classes and mentally place them, depending on the judge I can do pretty well sometimes lol! Others not so much lol!

I tried with the Alpines and Lamanchas at the show on Monday. I was NEVER right about the Alpines...which is especially sad because I have one. The Lamanchas I did a little better. But the judges placed some better based on information I didn't have like ages... I watched one doe that didn't look great conformation wise but really excellent for her age, get placed above younger ones just because she was years older. I have a lot to learn.

And I watched the does all licking each other and the fencing and it freaked me out a little. Watching goats from a herd that is tested and clean, licking on a herd that is suspect.

Was Cliff of Longvu there?

Yah.. Age plays a part most times...

Yah.. I always have my pen separate and put tarps up along with sanitizing the pen... We now have our own pen to bring with us... And a tarp to lay on the ground of our pen...

maybe....the name is familiar but I wasn't paying too much attention since we don't have Lamanchas and planning on getting into them. I really wanted to see the Oberhasli class but we had to leave just before they started :(

No one there had pens separated and then they all had to leave goats for the full 9 days of the fair. I don't even know how any goats come back healthy.

Awe that's a bummer!!

A good immune system :shrug: l always am one of the few that takes those extra steps..
But, you also get to know people and their herds so you know who you can feel 'safe' near ;)

She's very nice! Looks like she could use more depth and brisket. But GOSH look at that LENGTH. She's going to do nice for you. :)

Thanks Danielle :) Lol! That's about the first thing I said when Laura took her out! "Gosh she's so long! And big!" She is the same size as Promise already! But Promise was a runt so she has an excuse ;) lol!
And I knew due to Hallie's lines she would be bigger then Promise.. :) Cliff's goats look smaller then those with the Kastdemur's lines :)

My mom doesn't want to show Jr's any more, but I *think* we will show them at New Boston cause it's close and I don't need a HC.. I'll bring the older gals with me to the other shows :)

After how long and hot and miserable New Boston was this year, I can't say I blame her! But we'll just bring our bathing suits this year, cool off between Sr. and Jr. classes and we'll all be refreshed and ready to continue!

Yep :) I don't handle the heat well and just about passed out at the Sunny Sisters show so that's why she said it I think :) but she didn't quite say no when I asked about New Boston lol!

Oh she said she was gonna be over there before the Sr does even ended lol!!
