Meat Goat Showmanship

Showmanship was the last event our goats and Julia participated in. Part of the judging is about appearance.
Hence the plaid shirt, boots and pulled back hair - and a smile! You are judged on the handling of the goats, and how you move in relation to the judge and goat. Then there is knowledge of the goat anatomy.
And that's just the parts we know so far!!We have a lot to learn about showmanship, and today was one of the first real lessons. For Julia and the goats,the fair is all fun and friends now, as the competition is over.
Nice job all!
