Noble Co. Results

Here are the results from the Noble Country Open Show! There were 350+ animals shown in one day with many Alpine and LaMancha classes at 18 or more goats in each class. Lots of good quality too!
Gala - 1st
Alithia - 2nd
Maggie - 5th
Mandie - 4th
Hannah - 3rd
Candie - 2nd
Camillia - 2nd
Tea' - 10th
Honey - 5th
Top - 2nd
Movie - 11th
Treasure - 12th
True - 7th
Ali - 2nd & Reserve Champion
Sunshine - 1st & Grand Champion & BEST IN SHOW!!!!!!!!!

Every show turns out different but this one was a fun surprise! Sunshine went out, caught that judges' eye and held out the hold time getting first in a huge class (at least 15 or so), winning Grand Champion Junior Alpine and then Best Junior Doe in show! There were a total of 350+ does at the show so probably at least 125 juniors. Very exciting for us!

It was a fun day overall even with a heavy thunderstorm starting out at the beginning of the show! We got to see a bunch of MI, IN and OH people so that was awesome. Most have only a few shows to go to yet this year. We have our fair, possibly state fair and maybe an open show in Sept down in OH. We'll see how it goes.

Here are just a few pictures we took. We were busy most of the day and didn't get too many pictures in.

Maggie! (we needed a new picture of her ;))
Golden Rule U R My Sunshine!!!
Another picture needed. ;) This is Alithia.
And just an added picture. These were taken Thursday night when we were doing hay. That's Abigail putting bales on the elevator and a friend taking them off the wagon. His brother and I were up in the barn stacking.

As for news around here, I am taking a livestock judging class and am heading up to the competition at State on Tuesday. It will be a long, tiring day so be praying for me! Tomorrow we have all our fair sign up plus all the 4H meetings in one night. Another stressful day. ;)

So, how was everyone's weekend?

God Bless!

Jenna, the judge was Matt something. Can't remember the last name. I've never seen him before and he said that this was his first big show he's judged. He did very well especially for having such big classes and went pretty quickly. Oh, and Tammy was there. ;)

Josh, there weren't any showmanship classes which I guess was okay with everyone since they just wanted to show and get out of there. As for the MI foks, there was Autumn Acres, Alpine Valley, the Nubian lady (Marshall), Gosnells, and us. I don't think there were any others.

Missed you guys at this show!

Go ahead and use my latest post! I actually found it on another blog I follow, and asked if I could post it on mine! I guess it's making it's way around... :)
God Bless,
