Well, the fair has finally ended. My son had several projects, horse, goats, sheep and poultry. His ducks got grand and reserve and tons of blue ribbons, he got several blue ribbons with his horse and the same with his lambs. However he did really really well with the goats. His pride and joy, Spike, won Grand Champion Buck and he also won Jr. Showmanship with him as well. Then in open class he won Outstanding Buck. He came home with several trophies and plagues. He is so tickled. All I hear is and you tried to give him away. I did, I confess, this guy is barely 1 yr old and is enormous. He was really hard to hang onto, he would jerk your arm right out of the socket and I was threatening to get rid of him if he didn't spend more training time and less playing time with him. Then he pulled on the leash so hard it snapped and I thought he broke my sons wrist. He didn't, but I really thought he had. I was so upset with him I called a friend up who had been asking about him and said take him. Luckily he didn't. Anyway, my son knew Spike was treading on thin ice and has really spent some time working him and now he is the greatest, leads wonderful and behaves much better. Oh yeah, he also won Judges Choice as well. He left the fair with his trophies and about 40 blue ribbons between 4H and open class.
