County Fair Goat Show

 We took the goats to the county fair goat show on Monday.  We had a great time and the kids (and goats) did really well and had a great time. 

I had to trim Ida's hooves at the last minute.  Have I mentioned I'm a procrastinator?








Here is Devin showing Ida in the dry yearling class. 

And since it was Kylee's first time showing, I went in to help her out with June.


Ida and June both got first in their classes, and June took Reserve Champion AOP doe.  AOP stands for All Other Purebreds.  Since Oberhaslis aren't very common, there are usually not enough to get their own breed classes, so they're lumped together with other less common breeds (like the Lamancha doe on the right of the picture below).





Now we just need to get the girls fattened up for breeding season!  Oh yeah, and I supposed I'll need to find a buck since I sold mine last year!

Yay! They did great (the goats and the kids)!! Ida and June look so pretty all clipped and bathed for the show. :) Congratulations!

I LOVE the look of Oberhasli. Someday I'd like to get an Oberhasli doe and breed her to one of my Nigerian bucks.
Congratulations on your fair winnings! Those are some pretty does! :)
