    @Goat Whisperer is smart. NC State Fair is a big money show. Bring all you can to maximize the check from the state.
    Spinning Spider put on FB they are bringing 45
    I don't know exactly how many we are bringing, between 24 and 45.

    ETA:
    Just checked we have registered 29

    Not finished.
    So sore.
    So tired.
    One more to tattoo.
    2 more to clip.
    2 started but not finished.
    Hooves on 8 goats.
    Pack the van.
    Feed.
    Milk.
    The place has hair, goat poop, debris everywhere.

    I have blisters on my hands from clippers and hoof trimmers.
    Badger and Rita were playing this morning and Badgers nail caught the back of my ankle - broke a blood vessel and let me just say. :hit:hit:hit
    Having vein issues makes it a bigger deal than normal.
    I am too old for this. :confused:

    Whose idea was it that we should show goats?
    Oh yeah... @OneFineAcre o_O

    Despite it all I am so excited. I wish I could go. This will be a highly competitive show!
    There are a lot of amazing goat breeders in NC so really all the shows are highly competitive.
    @OneFineAcre hope Cocoa gets her 3rd leg! Is Rachel showing her? I know GW wouldn't want to interfere, but I think she is hoping to be able to.

    I just posted
    I think Rachel has changed her mind
    Her mom could use the help here
    I'm counting on GW to show Cocoa
    Actually was going to try to work that if Rachel did go

    Y'all do realize the State Fair Youth show has been split into 2 shows just like the open show because of the numbers
    Sannens LaManchas Nubians and Nigerians in Ring 1
    Toggs Obs Grades and Alpines in 2

    So you guys will have to juggle in both shows

    They will pick a BIS in both rings but in the youth show the 2 judges will
    decide the Overall Best for the $1,000
