    Hello everyone!

    My name is Charlene and I am from the great state of Washington! I personally do not own any goats myself, yet ;). However, for the past two years I have shown FFA, 4-H, and ADGA open shows. I live near some farms which own dairy goats, and they have been gracious enough to let me work with and show there animals. I love all goats of coarse, though I am drawn to the dairy breeds the Nubian's in particular. However, I mostly have been working/showing Toggenburg's and Nigerian Dwarf's, with Nubian's dabbled in here and there. This coming year I hope to work more exclusively with the Nubian breed. Because of everything I learned and experienced within the goat world, I hope to keep it apart of my life forever. I have absolutely fallen in love with it all. I hope to one day own a small quality Nubian heard, and to even become an ADGA judge.

    Besides goats I am very involved in FFA, I am serving as the 2009-2010 chapter president and WA District III Historian. I also have a horse, a 6 yr old Shire gelding named Honor.

    I'm exited to be part of this forum and I look forward to it all.

    Thought I'd share some fun photos! :D

    Hey, welcome to the goat spot, you folks from Washington need to travel to Idaho in May to the ISDGA show-i'd love to meet you and see all of your goats. I dont think i've acctually met anyone in person on this forum. This is a great place to learn about new things and meet fellow goat people.
