When I went to pick up our photography entries from the county fair this afternoon I was pleasantly surprised to discover that this picture of four year old Ari and Mame's three day old buck kid had garnered not only a blue ribbon, but also the "People's Choice" award.
Now I will have a "matched set" to hang on the wall because in 2008 a picture of then four year old Bekah and Allie's one day old buck kid won a blue ribbon and a "Most Representative of the Fair" award.
Guess there is just something magical about a four year old child with a new goat kid. Don't know what I'm going to do for an encore next year. Guess I'll have to borrow someone else's cute child. :)
For the past two years, only my goat pictures have garnered me ribbons and this year the trend was broken by the picture of Sophie stocking the goats.
