Yesterday morning I took the plunge and entered, Rita, Itty Bitty and Choc-o-latte in the Oregon State Fair. This will be my first foray into showing and I'm rather nervous getting it all figured out, and training the goats especially Rita, since she is a rather shy goat that prefers to stay away from people.
The three of them are entered in a total of eight classes, including the Breeders Trio, Get of Sire, Produce of Dam, Dam & Daughter and finally the Fair Special for Oregon Bred & Owned. So Sept 4th is shaping up to be a very exciting, if nerve wracking, day. Hopefully Bekah will do as well showing Choc-o-latte for me as she did with Photography at the Linn County Fair.
And speaking of the Linn County Fair, we stopped by there on our way back from signing up in Salem to pick up our photography entries and discovered that in addition to the blue ribbon her baby barn swallow picture had also received the People's Choice Award! I am so proud of her!!
