Clover was 2nd in One ring- GW cannot remember what she did in the other two rings
All 3 girls were about in the middle of ~18? goats in the next 2 rings.
Not great, not bad either.

I never saw the point of having lean yearlings anyway...Why should a goat be lean if she isn't working yet?

Don't feel bad SBC, I can no longer run either. This leg and foot just won't function properly any more. Sorry to hear about the toe. Glad all the goats were okay, and isn't that the way it always happens? Never can find what ya need in a rush, but it sounded like "Rescue by Committee".

Glad the goats got rescued - that would be scary! Sorry about your toe, hope it heals up soon.

Crazy weekend!
DH, Little Bit (DD) and GW were headed to the show Fri.
But Fri am Jane decided to kid. :)
Finished trimming and getting goats ready to go... loaded... off they went!
:th:th:th

Saturday was actually one of the hardest and probably the worst day I have EVER had on the farm other than losing Callie and losing Star.
In one way or another I was covered in poop like all day.
Jane was so swollen after kidding and started running a fever (not too high but a fever none the less and she started having really ploppy mushy poo), I am feeding babies, milking, running around like a mad woman don't know what is going on with Jane. Called the vet and asked if I should just start Penn G... maybe Banamine.
I finally sat down and said "Lord I just need some good news!"
Right then I get a text from @OneFineAcre saying "I guess you heard the good news?"
I text back and say, "No, I haven't heard anything."
He let me know what was going on and shortly there after I got this pic!

Congratulations!!!....:thumbsup
It is always the "Road Crew" and those "Backstage" that bare the "Load" with their "Tongues hanging Out", while the "Stars" are well rested, comfy, and well fed....:)
When ya get so busy, ya need to hook a couple of leads on those "Boys" of yours and slap on your "Skates" and let them pull ya to where ya need to go.....:gig

As always those here were awesome! Everyone pitching in and no way could I have managed without them!
As a matter of fact, after everyone got home I still had to bottle feed, hay, feed and milk.... GW took over milking and my one son said- No mom, I got this! I told him I appreciated the help and he said ... NO... I GOT THIS! Go rest!

I am beyond blessed @CntryBoy777 I think it is one of the many advantages of a large family. There is no room for selfishness, no room for the "it is all about me" thing... everyone shares, everyone gives.
It's great they are all leaving the nest LOL but it is also great they come home.

It is a Good feeling when ya "See and Witness" the lessons "Taught" seemed to stick some where between the ears of those we have "Raised".....and, that whole "Fruit and Tree" thing doesn't just work in a bad direction everytime, there is also truth in the other direction also. Ya need to make sure that boy gets an extra Biscuit for breakfast as a "Thank-Ya".....:)
