    Well one of our good friends asked us to go to a show this weekend (2 nights and three days) and we said we couldn't make it. But she really, really wanted us to come so we decided to go, it was about 4 hours from here so they asked us if we wanted to stay at their house, so that was very nice! Plus our other friend (he is a judge) was going to stay there also, we all stayed up until 3:30 AM talking "goat" and we learned TONS. And were pretty tired the next morning LOL. He also evaluated some udders, kids, bucks and does for us which was so nice. Especially a FF that I had never seen full and was contemplating selling. Well he really liked her and told us to keep her, she looked SO much nicer full. We took Junior Champ Buck and Reserve Junior Doe. We also met someone who is interested in a buck from us and we got some really neat info from them. Plus we learned how to band a yealing buck (it CAN be done!) and tatoo in the tail, he was going to help get some scurs off of some of our bucks but we didn't get to it.

    Isn't it exciting!! So glad you enjoyed it. We had so much fun at our first show. Just to be there and talk with all those other goat people is great. We have learned alot from showing and made alot of new freinds too. I know what you mean about tireing. We are exhausted when we get back!
