Goats, gripes, and grasping for greatness
Remember Constantine-goat? He's wearing a champion fleece.

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.

Yay! Isn't that "Look what I did!" an awesome feeling? :)

Yes, really it is! Especially when I can credit someone else for taking care of him for the summer and show him, etc. so I can share the credit.
