The GA Dairy Goat Breeders Association held a very hospitable show. It was our first "official" show, because we actually participated with OUR own goats! We loved the friendly atmosphere, and felt like it was more of a BBQ that everyone brought their goats to! The weather was warm, but a constant breeze through the barn and ring kept it quite comfortable. We are always pleasantly surprised by the wonderful people we meet. We can chalk it up to fabulous time spent with great people! We will be back next year!
Katie once again, happily, showed goats for Rusty Repp at Little Tot's Estate. Thanks Rusty! And "Coach" Mary for all your help and support! Here is Katie showing her favorite of Rusty's herd, Carya, a beautiful Jr. Doe. Katie also showed her in Showmanship and placed third in a competitive class! It's obvious to anyone watching that all these kids work so hard long before they get in the ring. Kudos to Judge Anne Clagett who was super and spent extra time giving the kids a "clinic" during the class! Loved it!
It's easy to say the highlight for Katie's day was buying this doeling from Rusty Repp! She is a Sugar Glider granddaughter!! Becca and Sugar will have competition from home!!!
One of our favorite things about the goat show is that there are so many breeds to watch, like this beautiful Toggenburg (left), and these colorful Nubians (below)!
The food was OUTSTANDING!!! No boiled hotdogs here! This was the real deal! Fresh, homegrown BBQ pork and beef. Homemade biscuits and fried apple pies!!! All made by these awesome ladies! Not a safe place for vegetarians! And I can't forget the beautiful flowers in the painted clay pots, with each pot having a different dairy breed painted on it, for centerpieces. So many wonderful and delicious things! Your efforts did not go unnoticed by us! See you next year!
