Better Late Than Never!!!

I took pictures of Riley and her goaties at County Fair, i swear i did! But none of my pictures turned out in the indoor arena!!! Luckily another Mom with a better camera than mine snapped some pics!!!

This is Riley getting ready for showmanship. Another 4her was kind enough to show her the ropes. You have to scrub your goats tootsies with a toothbrush and then put BABY SOCKS on them so they dont get dirty on their way to the show ring!! And apparently your goats clip job must be perfect or else the judge will tell you so...that kind of stung a lil...i always fancied myself an above average clipper person. Apparently not!!!!

Goat showmanship is tricky, you must always be on the opposite side of the judge even while leading your goat. You are asked to do all these maneuvers and answer all kinds of questions. If i had been Riley i would have needed a valium or two....

Riley got 4th...i was elated both with the idea that she got fourth and that it was over! Phew-intense!!!!
Next we had the breed classes. Riley got second in both of those.

So what does a goat girl do in her spare time once the Fair is over??????

The white had to have been a mans idea!!!!! Even the dairy cow kids have to wear all white! I guess the white signifies milk??? It is clearly a mans thinking...clearly!
