I'm the last person in the world that should be writing a blog about goats......I know nothing about them! However, I do know the goat handler, in this case, it is my 15 year old Grandson Vincent.
The judging is tough.....the judge looks at the goat's confirmation and cleanliness but she is, also, judging how each goat owner shows their animal. The kids are judge on everything from what they are wearing to how much attention they pay to the judge and how they handle their goat and/or someone else's goat. All this with your parent, grandparents and bunch of strangers watching! Whew!
This is Vincent's third year of participation in showing his goats at the fair. It's a great learning experience for him, not to mention, a lot of fun hanging out with your friends and eating junk food....does it get better than that!
