The Oregon State Fair is an ADGA sanctioned show and this year's judge was Carrie Kahle. In my previous post I mentioned that this was the first time showing for humans and goats and that I didn't have high expectations given the obstacles we faced just prior to fair time.
The goats behaved reasonably well in the show ring with our highest placing being a second for Rita in her class. The competition was very lovely and the doe that placed first went on to win grand champion. So overall I was pleased with Rita.
Choc-o-latte and Itty-Bitty place 6th & 8th respectively in their class and Rita & Choc-o-latte placed 5th in Produce of Dam. My 7 year old daughter who was showing Choc-o-latte was so excited that her baby had finally gotten a ribbon that she wasn't about to give any of the credit to Rita. :)
It was an interesting and educational experience and I couldn't have done it without the help of my friend Sarah of Mac's Rainbow getting the does tattooed for me when I was sick/injured and helping with the clipping. And of course a big thanks to Dorothy and Bekah for helping at the show.
