    It was so much fun to get ribbons at the show last year...then Angie received Grand Champion Junior doe and I have the big ribbon hanging in my room.....but no one but me or my mom comes into my room.

    I was going through my binder with all the goat stuff when Ashely was here and my mom said "you should hang those ribbons up in your barn"

    so I got to thinking how does everyone else show off their ribbons? I dotn want the big one to get soiled or ruined in the barn so I need ideas on how to keep it clean.

    Do you ever take your previous show ribbons to the next years shows??

    I have mine hanging in my room right now, but I've seen breeders who have them hung up in their milk room, or in a clean non goat area of their barn. The ones with them hanging in the barn have them on a bulliten board(with the cork back) with a sheet of clear plastic over the top. The ribbons still looked nice even though some of them were quite old.

    wow.. i feel like a jerk.. but i throw mine i a tote tub

    not too big on bragging and trying to be a "showoff".. i mean.. you get waht you get.. i bought my first goat from a breeder who had tons of ribbons everywhere and the doe was as far from being anything near a ribbon winner.. i got laughed out of a showring with it!

    and my best does and buck right now are from breeders who didn't have they're big fan fare out

    i DO have my reserve 4h champion market wether ribbon out.. but that's because it's jelani's... and he was absolutely fantastic.. and is now tacos

    My daughter use to put them on the wall, but pretty soon that was all that was on the wall. Now oh I think she just has them in a trunk. At last count two years ago she had over 600 ribbons. I wish she would at least hang her Premier Breeder, Premier Exhibitor, and the Grand Champion and reserve Champion stuff. She saiid no I do not need to have more stuff to dust.

    Same here Allison. :tears:

    But when I had ribbons from my horse showing days I would hang them in my room on my wall. Once I ran out of room they went in a box. lol

    but what good are they in a box :shrug: no one can see them and they just take up space.

    Unless do you take them out later for something? DO you send them with buyers?
