    Friday DS and I showed our goats in an open show at a nearby county fair. The judge was one that we had looked forward to having critique our goats, since we had attended fitting/showing/husbandry clinics previously where he was a presenter. He is highly regarded in our state.

    We were both terribly nervous! My son went first, and he got grand champion with his 15 month old Saanen doe. Here is a photo of the twosome:

    I went next and got the same (GC) with my 5 month old FB Boer doeling. My son took photos, and they were either all blurry or did not have the goat in them, so I will just post a photo of Aurora, my doeling.

    P.S. We have another show next weekend, where we'll show Aurora again and my buck (Wolfgang Buck). I am a little less nervous after this past weekend, but still on pins and needles! It's an ABGA sanctioned show.
