Shows

Playing catch up

We have had a super busy and at times intense past two weeks and I am glad to finally slow down some, catch a breath and enjoy fall on our little farm.
 
Both County and State fair sucessfully behind us .... I will say as much as we always look forward to them, I am also relieved when our show season is over. It was short and sweet this year - just the two and plenty to keep us busy.
 
County went well, we had both our old timers and some new faces there. I took over the super intendant job from my friend, and had she not been moving to Colorado, I would happily hand it back to her :) In all seriousness, county is work in progress since our little dairy goat show is only 2 years old and we are still tweaking quite a bit.

County Fair

Just a quick hello this morning as we are getting ready for our fall county fair. Will report when we get back !
 

Oklahoma State Fair

And so it is that time again .... summer heat waves are giving way to some cool morning and evening temperatures, girls are starting to cycle and boys are going to rut, and with upcoming fall months also comes show season.
 
We show sparingly, we only did one spring show in Purcell, OK and were very pleased with results - Imagine went Grand Champion, Best of Breed and Best in Show and Calypso placed in top of her class in both rings.
 
Oklahoma State Fair will likely be our only event this fall and we have decided to only take a small group of does to show.
