In this post I am going to try to finish up my summer. (Okay, here goes!) After all the camps we went to, we then had to get all ready for the fair. Fair is always a lot of fun, because we get to show our goats, work in the kitchen and the drink stand! I love fair!
On Friday evening we took our goats to the fair and on Saturday the fair started.
On Saturday: Mom, Zoe and I rushed about the house and got all the entries over to the fair building before "close-out time". Then at 2:00 PM we went to the fairgrounds again for the little kids tractor pull.
Then on Sunday (after Church): we headed over to the fairgrounds for the Ham Barbecue.
After we had all finished our food, we went to look at all the different entries and animals!
That night Zoe and I had Joanna (a cousin) over and she stayed for the next two days.
On Monday: Mom, Zoe, Joanna, Lincoln, Bethany and I went to see (cousin) Zachary show his cows! We gave our goats a bath (for the next day)... Then, Zoe, Joanna, Lincoln, Anna (another cousin) and I worked in the fair eatery. What fun!
Tuesday: was the big day to show our goats. The show started at 8:00 AM!!! We had to get up early!
We got in our show clothing and then Mom french braided Zoe's hair and Joanna french braided my hair! We got to the fair and got everything ready for the show ring. We showed the Market goat’s first! (I was in the first class because my goat did not weight that much) ...There were 49 market goats there this year!
I got 2 place in my class. Zoe got first in her class and Lincoln got second in his class. Than Zoe and I got showed our dairy goats. Zoe showed her goat Noodles and I showed my goat Mocha. (I got first in my dairy class) When all the classes were done we had to get ready for showmanship. It was so exciting!!!!! Lincoln showed Jake his meat goat and got 1st place in his class. Zoe showed her meat goat to and got 4th place in her class. I got Intermediate Showman Reserve Champion with my dairy goat. Than I was really happy!!!!!!! Anyways, that was fair!
I will try to post in the coming week.
