2010 Summer in the Mountains Dairy Goat Show

There's Mike in th middle actually handling for CapraKoza because Jenna and Nicole had winners in three classes! and that doe Mike has won the Senior Champioship.

We've enjoyed showing our goats at the Shows, however, we've been having the best time with the other goat breeders especially the Nigerian -breeder folks. Most everyone else is much more experienced than us too, so we've been learning a lot.

The Goat Shows that we have been going to are Dairy Goats, not Meat Goats. The Dairy Breeds are:
LaMancha
Nigerian (the only mini dairy goat)
Saanen
Olberhalsi
Nubian
Alpine (French)
Toggenburg

Because we have Nigerians, that's the breed I'm photographing but the other dairy breeds are represented at the Dairy Shows too.
I'd like for J-Nels to sell me Zita but no luck yet.


to the far right, that's our TootleLu, Logan bought her, and Toot will be roommates with his CocoaBean

I'm glad that you're having a good time at the shows, Joanna. That is exactly the right attitude to have, whatever you're showing. Some people get so cutthroat competitive when they show that you wonder what enjoyment they get out of it.

It looks like a wonderful time! Congratulations on your boys. Poor Mike - giggle - did he get mad at you for his rear end photo? Seriously, it's really great to see you enjoy these things together!!

I love the three generation picture, what handsome fellows....great genes.
Looks like you had a great time.
As we have received two new goat on the Sanctuary farm I am really getting to know goats and what beautiful animals they really are. They have such smart looking eyes. Very very cute.

Congrats to Beaux--he's sure got some good bloodlines, huh? How did Tootle Lu do?

I need to do a little research to learn what to look for in a dairy goat. I'm always looking at their colors to decide which ones I like best! Somehow, I think that's not what you all are focusing on, lol!

Hey what about the Alpine and Nubian breeders - aren't we any fun or good company? BTW - Alpines come in two flavors American or French (French Alpines are also know as Purebreds).

This is so interesting to me, and I know NOTHING about goats! I would love to attend a show sometime just to see the different kinds and how they are judged. Maybe in the Fall you can let me know where the shows are?
