I don't remember if I mentioned it earlier, but thought it might be nice to share: Constantine-goat, who is now two years old (born on 3/2/12), took grand champion for best fleece this summer at the 4-H show in Charlottesville. Orange. Something like that. In any case, the notable part about this is that he beat out a field of white angoras. Duuuuude. My big baby-turned-runt has turned into the fiber-producing champion of central Virginia.
While I'm a very surprised at the mixed-field champion ranking, I'm not shocked that he did well within his group because Constantine's mother Mona and aunt Dahlia both placed very well when they competed.
