This year I dove head first into the world of showing, and my lovely ladies have all done phenominal things in there own rights. It's amazing to see how far my herd has come. The show had about 50 head of dairy goats there- not enough in each breed to sanction, but it was a great show anyways. I took 6 of my does. ButterBean- 2nd place 2yr old Sr. ( milking doe in front of us- grr) Jane- 1st place Yearling milker- ( She technically hasnt freshned yet, but she was the oldest in the class below with a nearly full udder and they wanted it to be fair.) Nuttah- 1st Place Sr. Kid Alli- 2nd place Sr. Kid Joy- 1st place Int. Kid Junya was my only doe that stood middle of the class- she just wasnt feeling very well though. She placed 5th in a class of 8. It was Jane's class. Then the real highlights of the day, Nuttah took Reserve Champion Jr. and Joy won Champian! :leap: My first Champion win! gotten several reserves this year but not Champion! Then Jane got Reserve Sr. beat only by the milker that beat ButterBean- and she hasn't ever kidded yet! lol Then ButterBean and I won 1st place showmanship to boot! It was sucha great day. I came home with 2 new goat coats, 2 blankets/throws, a nice garment bag, a goody bag of shampoos and a comb, and the best feeling that I'm finally getting somewhere. I'll try to post a few pics in a little while.
