Kid 3 received honorable mention along with two other girls for being the youngest competitors. They each were given a bucket filled with grooming supplies.
Today was the goat show. Kid 4 won grand champion for quality (of the animal compared to the standard for the breed). He carried his ribbons and trophy with him all afternoon!
Kid 3 won the grand championship for showmanship in the dairy goat show. She advances to the round robin competition in the morning. The round robin takes the championship showmen from each of the large livestock classes (dairy cows, beef cattle, pigs, sheep, dairy goat and meat goat) and has them rotate through showing each of the breeds. All of them are shown slightly differently, so the kids have to go around the barn asking the other competitors how to show their animals before the show starts.
Check out the video below of Kid 4 riding a calf in tonight's rodeo!
At 2:30 pm tomorrow (Saturday, August 16), it will be be time to auction off the mustangs. We will be sad to see Xoe go, but we are excited about new opportunities for her with her new owner!
