    We have two goats - neither have papers. I was hoping to enter my daughters goat with her showing her for the Chester Fair this summer.

    There is a recorded grade class - would I be able to enter her in that? What is a recorded grade? Lulu is nigerian or pygmy cross. If I can;t get her recorded do you see anythng that I can get her in?

    This is from the fairs website:

    : Exhibitors will be held responsible for keeping alleys free of feed, dunnage and appearance of exhibits throughout the three days of the Fair. Entries will only be accepted between 6:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. on Friday.

    Goat show starts promptly at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday.

    CT. Goats must have a USDA - approved identification and a health certificate issued within 60 days of their first show from an accredited veterinarian stating that the animals are in good health and not showing signs of infectious, contagious and/or communicable diseases and not from scrapie-exposed herds.
    All exhibitors must wear show whites whenever animals are being shown.
    All exhibitors are encouraged to enter a fitting and showing contest.
    All animals must have been owned by exhibitor by July 1, 2009 with the exception of kids born into exhibitor’s herd. No animal under one month old may be shown.
    Age of animals will be determined as of date of show. Exhibitors age will be determined as of January 1, 2009.
    Entries positively close as soon as every pen is full.
    Exhibitors must furnish own feed and hay; bedding will be provided.
    All exhibitors must send a copy of health papers.
    Goats must be entered in Junior or Senior departments, not both.
    Where there is no competition, the judge will award ribbons and prize money as he or she sees fit.

    no she wouldnt be a grade -- recorded grades are only for standard size goats and can not be mixed with nigerian blood.

    sounds like they need to be registered so no you cant show a mix breed nigerianXpygmy in that show.

    Now I would just contact the people in charge of the show because they woudl know more of their requirements and such.

    Trace -- would they be able to go into the pet goat catefory and some of the fitting classes? Even though they arent' registered, it'd be great to try some class out.... and Great Cashmeres and I DO expect you to enter our on line show! LOL
