    And we did pretty good!!! I didn't know they were doing showmanship...they usually do, but they didn't list it in the flyer this year. So, I didn't showmanship ready my doe...and I wasn't in full showmanship clothes....just a white t-shirt, jean shorts, and white shoes. In a class of 3 I still managed 2nd! I did have some errors and I know I did them...I did it and then thought...crap I wasn't supposed to do that. We took Flicka, Lark, Perfection, and Brook. This show was kind of small this year...only Jr. Nubians were sanctioned...and that was barely...there were 10. Flicka was 1st in her milking yearling class...she was the only one in her class. The judge really liked her udder. Perfection was 2nd and Brook was 3rd in a class of 3. Brook was giving Mom issues walking and the ring had mulch....she kept pulling back some and would roll right on the back of her heal...she doesn't look like that when walking on a solid surface. Then Lark was 1st in a class of 4. She was then named GCH and got her dry leg!!!!! :leap: :wahoo: I had to go back out for BJDIS....the judge went over every animal and said positive things about them. Then she said "I am going to go with a doe that just hits me everytime she walks into the ring....the little Nubian doe." You can bet that I was excited!!!! :clap: :leap: :stars: :wahoo:
