    I've been asked to judge a miniature silky fainting goat show (as well as a regular fainting goat show) -- how fun will that be!!!!!!! Anyone out there have any fainters?

    I raise Myotonic goats and go to most of the shows that are in the TN, Mo, KY, IN area.
    Are you judging the Valley of the Sun Fainting Goat Show in Ramona, California?

    I have been studying -- 30% general appearance, 30% coat and 30% structure. Leaner than a meat goat, but body style more like a meat than a dairy. I've looked hard at the pics of the coats --- cheek muffs? Is that right? I'm looking forward to judging and it sounds like tons of fun, but I really am taking the breed standard seriously and really reading it. I'm just that kinfda girl. :thumb:

    That sounds like the Mini Silky standards.
    the standard Myotonics are a little different.

    Hi! Good to see you on here... Didn't you have that cute jr buck -- the silky at the show? He was handsome! Anyway, I had a ball judging. I would have loved to have stayed longer and chatted, but didn't have the time. And I'm disappointed that I didnt' even get to see anyone faint! :wink:

    You didn't get to see anyone faint because you were in the show barn and not outside watching us try to get the goats from the pens to the barn! LOL

    Yes, I was the one with the Jr. Silky buck.. He did really well that weekend! Only one more point for his Master Championship! YAY! :- ) I can't wait until next year... hopefully he finishes at the Idaho show!

    Jess, When/where is the Idaho show? Who puts it on? I've judged pygmies up there at a fair ... I wonder if the fair could combine the shows somehow so I could judge for the fainters too. Someone told me you guys had a BEEF cattle judge one time! At least, I judge the smae species!!

    That would be cool! Tammy from Cuddy Mountain Ranch puts on the Idaho show... so she would be able to give you date info and everything. www.cuddymountainranch.com

    The Idaho show is 4 shows... so I'm sure she needs judges. :- )
