Back from the show!!
Wow, this has been a busy fun week so far!! We took the Nubian girls up Monday evening, and then the show started Tuesday morning. It ended up starting way later than it was supposed to because we were waiting on our judge. So I think we didn't start until about 11:30 instead of 9:00.
Here's how we did on the first day.
1st place yearling milker- Lakeshore PS Shardae
1st place Jr. kid (5-8 mo. class) Shekinah's EH Sonata
2nd place Jr. kid (5-8 mo. class) Shekinah's EH Shalom
2nd place Jr. Get of Sire- Shardae's triplets (for those of you that aren't familiar with dairy goat terms, this is a group class showing 3 kids all from the same sire)
2nd place Jr. Produce of Dam- 2 of Shardae's triplets
3rd place Best three Jr. Does- Shardae's triplets
1st place Dam and Daughter- Shardae and Sonata
Wednesday turned out great too...
2nd place yearling milker- Shardae (She didn't udder up as nicely as she did the first day)
1st place Jr. kid- Shekinah's EH Sonata
4th place dry yearling- Blissberry FM Main Attraction
1st place Jr. Get of Sire- Shardae's triplets
1st place Jr. Produce of Dam- 2 of Shardae's triplets
2nd place Best three Jr. Does- Shardae's triplets
2nd place Dam and Daughter- Shardae and Sonata
I was so happy to get first place again with Sonata!! The second judge really placed things up differently than the first judge, so I was really excited she placed 1st under both. Thanks so much to my friend Emily for showing her to both her first place wins. :)
It was definitely a fun show!! Had a lot of fun spending time with all my "dairy goat" friends too. :)
Now I'm getting geared up for the Boer goat show on Saturday...hopefully it will go well!
Unfortunately pretty much all of our pictures turned out really grainy and blurry....but I picked out a few to post anyway.
