    I recently contacted one of my goat friends, in desperate need of a lamancha milker (my best doe got mastitis in both sides :veryangry: ), and what does she offer me, the 2 yr old doe from her 2006 ADGA reserve national champion :drool: I'm the most excited person ever! I was also asked to go to ADGA nationals as a showman/herdman for her...I love tapping into all of my "you owe me one" circumstances! I bring her home this coming Sunday, and possibly another 2 yr old (she has soo many nice 2 yr olds and can't keep them all) that she used some nice Willow Run semen on (the Tumbleweed didn't turn out so hot) I'm just so excited and needed to share my joy with some fellow goaters :wahoo: Yay!! OK I'm done with my bragging lol

    Yes I am so excited. I went in 2008, however the Kentucky expo center had the AC cranked up, so we went from 90's to like 65 degrees, so all of my does got chilled and hunchy before the show. I was planning on going this year again, however finances aren't in place lol but I am planning on going in 2011, should be exciting hopefully :)

    I learned that she injured herself (rolled shoulder), it's nothing super major, but still puts a bit of a damper on the whole thing...but she should be good in a few weeks hopefully :pray: It has started to go down according to breeder...

    Oh my, wishing a speedy recovery. :pray: Is she going to stay at the breeder's and recover, or will she still be coming?

    I'm deff. taking her, she'll do better, because I put new additions in a holding pen for a few weeks when I first get them, so she'll have time to heal, at the breeders she might get beat up (there's an awful lot of earless things running around lol) so...hopefully everything will go according to plan B lol.

    I went and picked her up tonight! She is a huge handful :roll: She was dam raised, never shown because of $$ & time issues (like we've all had), and has NEVER stepped foot out of the barn! Oh do I have my work cut out for me...but she did offer me another doe, finished as a brood doe (she's 6), that is just exceptional. I will hopefully get photos up sometime tomorrow of Katana, but here is her pedigree that I'm in love with :love: http://www.adgagenetics.org/GoatDetail. ... L001455790 even though this doesn't show the beautiful *'s, +'s, and SGCH's that accompany many of the goats...sorry about the bragging...I'm done for now :D
