    My SIL sent me updates. Not bad, but not where I thought we'd be.

    So far it's:

    Frida 11th in ring 1, 10th in ring 2. Both judges like her udder and dislike her shoulder assembly. I agree. That's why we selectively breed to improve. She's got the genetics, she just got the short end of the stick LOL

    Morgan 5th/4th - - She's a little thin right now and both judges want to see her fuller over the top line.

    Diva 5th/4th - - huge class with huge udders from the pictures I've been sent.

    Senior nigis up next then juniors start.

    Here's two of the pictures someone sent me:

    I see the problem! John is wearing JEANS instead of nice white pants like dairy goat show folks are supposed to wear! :duc:hide :lol: Sorry the girls aren't off to a stellar start... but 4th and 5th aren't too bad... Do you know how many they were competing against?

    No idea classes aren't that big for the LM though from what I've heard. Except Diva's.

    June was 11th /12th in two big classes.

    Pearl as well.

    Finally getting around to juniors.

    Mason did peewee showmanship with a peewee goat. :love

    My SIL sent me tons of pictures. I'll post some when I get home from work.

    Huge competition. The show is finally winding down.

    June and Pearl got 11th and 12th in both rings in their respective classes.

    Sightly and Mason did well in their peewee class.

    Damsel got 2nd in both rings.... out of 2.

    Pictures coming.

    Corrected because I went back through my texts

    Love how the judge is down at Mason's eye level. Shows real consideration for the kids learning to show.

    @Bruce they sent me a video of Mason struggling and the judge knealing down to tell him how to fix it.

    John was quite impressed, as was my sister, with the judge doing the peewee stuff.

    That is so great, that's what it's all about! So cool to see him in the ring! How old is he?
