Back from the Show!

Blissberry Touch Of Elegance

Blissberry FM Main Attraction

Well we got back from the I.N. D. G. A. Dairy goat show at about 3:00 a.m. on Sunday! Wow it was a loooonng day with the show starting at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday and ending around 11:00 p.m. Had a blast though! My yearling well almost 2 year old milker 'Blissberry FM Main Attraction' was 1st in her class in the first ring, and 2nd in the other. Shardae managed to pull off 3rd in a huge class in the second ring, she totally hates the show ring so doesn't show herself off very well.

'Shekinah's Sweet Sensation' (Jr. Kid) was 3rd in the first ring and 2nd in the other, and one of my yearlings was 3rd in her class. There was a lot of beautiful Nubians there, lots of competition!

We finally started the buck show at around 10:00 p.m. maybe? It was late! My Jr. buckling 'Shekinah's Drama Boy was first in his class and Jr. Champion in the first ring, and 1st and Res. Jr. Champion in the second ring. And my yearling buck *B Blissberry MW Rocketeer took Grand in the first ring over all the older bucks! Really cool! He was 1st in his class in the second ring.

It was a really fun day, had a blast with all of our friends, and a rather violent game of spoons! :D Thank the Lord for his blessing on my goat endeavors!

My big Boer boy 10B2B X111 went to his new home today, I'm going to miss him, but he went to a really great family.

some baby pictures!

Well I don't have time for a real long post, but thought I'd at least post some pictures!! I know I'm loooonnngggg over due, things have been busy around here. These two little girls were born this afternoon, out of my doe I got flown in from CA last year, Lakeshore Hot To Trot. I have a show coming up this weekend, Lord willing. It will be a lot of fun, I'm so excited about it! I'll be taking 9 of my Nubians to show, and probably Hot To Trot's babies will have to come along so I can take care of them...and maybe her too because I'm not sure she will have the milking routine down well enough for Hosanna to be able to handle her.

For some reason Dooley had escaped outside and he was finding the baby goats quite interesting! Oh and please note the pictures were taken by "GoatGirl" photography...and I don't totally know how to use Anna's camera so some of the pics are kinda blurry. lol :)
