So we made it through our first fair with goats and chickens the past two days. It was a small community fair based on our county in SE michigan. It was not part of 4-H, but we were not as prepared as we should have been for showmanship. Does anyone know what is the typical info a judge is looking for in the 6-8 year old class? It seems like breed and birthdate was on the judges mind, where we head been studying all the body cuts and such. Is any of this spelled out somewhere for future fairs? Our wether took my son for a ride in the ring, but he did his best to hang on. It seems unfair to have a big goat vs a small goat in the same class. I know some full grown wethers are real calm. Ours is just a handful, but it's the only goat that he had to show!
