    So, the fair has come and gone, I went to Fairbanks as well as the local Palmer (AK State) fair, and needless to say.. we did very well!

    The Fairbanks (Tanana) Fair is pretty small, and I only took up rabbits (I breed Flemish Giants and Satins) for the ARBA show, but it was way fun and I won BOB and BOS for the Flemish!

    The Palmer (Ak State Fair) is much larger and lasts two weeks, the barn community is great and tight knit. I love it. The Judge, Keith was from TX and really loved the Boers I had, Calypso took Grand Champion and Anberlin Reserve Grand Champion (Best in Show) and I placed first in all but one of the Boer classes, as well as Grand Champion Senior Goat Showman and Senior Master Showman!
    :cool:

    This is Calypso and Javelin being shown for BIS
