Goat show, day 3

Justin won 1st place in the "red card" colored buck kid class.
Anna won 2nd place in the colored senior doe kid class.
Madison won 4th place in the colored senior buck kid class.
Loki placed 2nd /last in the colored adult buck class.
Dru placed 6th / last in the colored yearling doe class.

The judge had some nice compliments for me. First, he thought all of Jared's kids (all but Loki) had really nice fleeces. Second, he thought all of the goats had very uniform fleeces -- that means that they are the same fine-ness (or coarse-ness) from neck to tail.

All in all, I'm pretty darn pleased. In fact, I'm still a bit bouncy about the whole thing, even after a four hour drive home towing a trailer on I-81 in the rain.

Edit: Clarification point - Loki is not one of Jared's kids at all, therefore was not in the discussion regarding fine fleeces from the same breeding program.

Additional: Anna has no horns, no "lock definition" (no ringlets), a frosted color pattern that makes it very hard to see her body shape, and was about two thirds the size of the first place doe. She won second place on fleece quality alone. That's why I value that second place ribbon the most.
