Show pictures!

So you are probably wondering how the show went. It was awesome. We managed to get to the show around 5:00 pm after our van (with the hitch) broke down and managed to get itself into a hard-to-fix situation. We had to borrow our neighbors truck, but thankfully all went well and nothing else broke down. We got all set up in the barn and at about 6:00 our friends arrived! It was lots of fun getting everybody bedded down and milked the first night. We didn't milk everyone, just those there for the milk test, which by the way were Gatlin, Hannah, Missy and Mandie. I didn't get the exact weights that they milked out but I do think they'll all pass. I'll let you know when I get those results. We were very happy with the placings we got both Saturday and Sunday.

Abigail and Jenna making supper on the tack box in the barn. Roughin' it. Sorry the picture isn't very clear. The barn was SO dusty since all the floors are sand. The camera lense got dusty. :(

I'll be posting some more pictures of the goats later on. I'll let you all dwell on these for now, then post pics of the parade.....then come the goat pictures. Hope you all like pictures.

Enjoy your day!

Great pics! What a fun weekend, wouldn't you agree? It was so nice to have a like minded family -not to mention wonderful friends- at the show that we could mingle with. And by the way, I am already anticipating the next show!!!
