The show at the fair was rough. There were three shows going on at the same time in the same place, Sheep, meat goats and dairy goats plus cattle next door. My goats have never met a sheep before and I could not get them to walk through the sheep to get to the dairy goat arena. Had to go around through the cattle side. They know cows.
And the noise. Two zillion of those livestock hair dryers going at the same time ALL.DAY.LONG. was tough . Could not hear the judges at all. Even when in the ring and they were speaking to you if you were on the side of the ring next to the hair dryers.
BUT there was a happy ending. My little Whiteoak-Bend Dark Chocolate, daughter of last week's blog picture, won Grand Champion Junior LaMancha in Ring 1. She was born in May and was in the youngest class. I am so proud of her. Her sire is Dream-Fire EZ Cunningham and Dark Chocolate looks just like her dam. Lynne Fancher, the breeder of Dream-Fire EZ Cunningham, arrived to watch the show just in time to see Dark Chocolate win. All that driving in the rain was well worth the trip after all.
