Hi all, We have shown wethers for a couple years, but this is out first year with a crop of babies. We will be showing in 4H as well as breed shows. We are trying to decide who gets banded, who gets disbudded, and which doelings to show and keep. I looked at the open show classes for the state fair from last year and it appears all goes by age, not color pattern. Is that generally the case? It was the first year our fair had an ABGA show....How about on selecting a buckling? How much weight should their color pattern play in deciding who we choose to show? The majority of the herd is correct in color but we did get a few paints in the kids. We also have a nice set of twin bucklings with nice head color, but a full red leg. Will that matter? How about for the does? Anyway...we have lots of questions and not many around here who show. Advice welcome!
