Clemson Goat Show

We're so proud of MilkDud here, Mike handling. Dud won his 2yr-to-under-3yrs class and now he is showing in the Senior Champions Class. Up front, muscular 7yr old Abe from Kids Corral won, MilkDud still needs to mature through the body. Hopefully, when Dud is 7yrs old, he will be filled out like Abe.


a typical lineup


We slept in the Goat Mote, it worked great. We plugged up to the show barn and had our A/C and interior lights on, also ran a water hose to the trailer and we had running water in the sink. The barn was never locked and had bathrooms and showers available 24/7.
Took all 6 kids with us, Chamonix kept escaping her pen and nice folks kept rescuing her, throwing her back in. We had a very good time although we were hoping our Junior Does, Gabbi and TootleLu had better results in the ring. MilkDud came through, he was sooo keyed up in the pen, very excited to be there.
Was VERY hot and humid in Clemson, whew, glad to be back in the hills.

beautiful LaMancha buck.



Remember our Deets? He won the Junior Championship, now owned by Kori Connor.



Mike handling Cahoot who came in 2nd. Red Cahoot got a red ribbon.


Champion Challenge, Abe beat Sudoko.


This is how I feel.
Next weekend, Spindale...

Well, it sounds like you had a wonderful time. Shows can be so much fun. You get the opportunity to meet new people, and learn new things. I'm glad that the goat mote worked out so well.

Congratulations, Milk Dud! What a gorgeous red beard. Congratulations also to Cahoot - 2nd place is nothing to sneeze at. Sounds like you had a grand, although tiring, time.

It sounds like you all had a wonderful time.

I just read your blog and figured you must have been the people with the pen at the end of the second row. Kassandra must have rescued that little escaping kid a half dozen times over the weekend.
