Ribbons and Hugs All Around!

Monday afternoon was the Breeding Meat Goat judging, and entered are only does, or females. In this group there are Boer goats...other meat breeds such as Pygmy, and Crossbred. Our two young does were in the latter category.
Jennifer Reynolds, from Westminster, MD returned as this year's judge.
Eleven goats were in the Under Six Month Breeding Meat Goat Crossbred category.
Julia got the 4-H Blue ribbon with our Adeline.
Run off for the Junior Champion.

We always think our goats are beautiful, but I must admit genuine surprise that these two young does did so well. Someone else thinks our goats are beautiful!!! A few eyes were glistening yesterday!

Julia did a great job showing them too. Adeline was especially good. She set up on her own during her class and stayed there. All that work came to fruition.
