There are a lot of firsts during your first year with goats! This is my first showmanship contest, where the contestants are judged on the way they show their goats. Showmanship is a lot of fun; and this time I was only slightly nervous beforehand. Aphie behaved perfectly and the Judge was really nice. The date of this show was August 8th, and I placed 6th in intermediate showmanship!

Goat show

Tuesday, August 7th was my first Goat Show!
It was a Goat Show, which means that the judge determines  how the goat conforms to her breed standard, how straight her top-line is, etc.

Before I went in, I was really nervous that Aphie wouldn't behave, that the judge would ask me some goat body parts and I wouldn't remember them... and that my shirt would come untucked!

 Everything was fine and I probably had no reason to be nervous; Aphie even got second place in her class!
