    I received some photos today from the NC State Fair last October and thought I'd share a few. This was the first time I had shown my goats. I entered two Nigerian Dwarf intermediate kids, Delilah and Butternut. They are half sisters with the same sire, Yubi, who is a buck out of beautiful Zamia from One Fine Acre. The goats seemed a little nervous and cold in their pen at the show. I couldn't get Delilah to pretend to know what to do on a lead except imitation crocodile death rolls, faints, and back flips, so I only brought Butternut up to the ring. Being inexperienced, I had her there well before we needed to be and when it was time for her class, Butternut was already ready to call it a day. In the lineup, I noticed that she seemed a head taller than most of the others In her age group, and the judge must have noticed too. He went and got the measuring stick to assure everyone that none of these kids were over height! Despite her crankiness, she did fine and placed fifth out of the ten entries. It was a worthwhile experience and I can't wait to see what she will turn out to be like when she's a first freshener next year.

    You did great out there too! You managed to get her more relaxed when she started getting real ancy! We were so happy for you!

    NC has incredible competition too! Are you going to Rocky Mount?

    I am hoping to go to Rocky Mount with the two girls. It partly depends on help at home with the others. As a viewer and vendor, I can commute to take care of chores. If I have goats there I'll have to arrange something and Memorial weekend is tricky.
