    We went to the Piedmont Dairy Goat Breeders Association Spring show 2 weeks ago in Shelby, NC.
    It was shall we say much more competitive than the show Memorial Day in Rocky Mount, but we still had fun as a family.
    What I consider to be the best breeder in NC was not in Rocky Mt, but they were only 20 minutes away from Shelby. Another top breeder that we know from 10 Mile TN was also there. One of the top breeders in the South East from the Atlanta GA area sent animals with his "apprentice" handler. You know you are a serious breeder when you have an apprentice to take animals to a show for you.:lol: There is a youth show on Friday night and then they have two rings on Sat and Sun. There were 22 dry yearling ND's in the first show on Sat. And any of the first 10 could have been GC's

    But anyway, there was a youth show on Friday and our first freshner Taffy was Reserve Grand Champion Doe in that show. We are very pleased with this little doe. She won her age group 3 times this spring and took a Grand Reserve.

    I got some pictures of Rachel showing Coleus in the youth show. She came in 2nd in her age group. She is 2 year old and this is her second freshning

    The rest of the weekend we were please overall with how our animals did in their respective classes. There were a lot of ND's at the show.

    This youth show was under Evin Evans.
    She busted Rachel for giving Coleus alfalfa pellets.
    Scolded her and her parents.:eek:

    Rachel is so adorable! Awww.
    Yeah, I know the judge has passed away and was very respected but I know several that have said she should not have judged anything with children.
    Before our time in that arena... so IDK.

    Taffy was reserve in the show and the aged doe was grand champion.
    So in the line up, the aged doe was at the front and Taffy at the back.
    She said that all of the goats in the middle were very similar and not in a good way :ep

    But, I will say one thing I liked about her. She picked Ginger as Grand Champion in the Rowan County Fair. That's the only GC Ginger has ever won.

    I was talking to Maurine about this. She remembered something else.
    The judge told this one kid that his goat was doing everything that he wanted her to do. Unfortunately, he wasn't getting her to do the right things. :lol:
