Shenandoah Valley Fiber Festival Goat Show - Sunday Results

Another day, a different judge... His first emphasis was fineness of fiber, his second was robustness of goat.

Constantine's fleece placed third. Very fine, not very uniform, and not enough of it for his age. Absolutely no surprises with that judgment.

Gimble placed fifth; Goblin placed sixth. Neither of them are very big and their horns are narrow. He did like Gimble's fleece, though. (So, basically, they hinged across the middle of the lineup as though it were a mirror image.)

And in a come-from-behind almost-victory, Talla placed second! I immediately turned to the woman who created Talla and congratulated her, too. Talla was complimented for her fine, thick fleece and robust appearance.

Thanks to everyone who came out to root me on this weekend. I really appreciate seeing all of the friendly faces and getting some home-field cheers.

... To finish out the nice day, I sold Gyre to a new home. Bye, Gyre!
