(belated) New York Sheep & Wool CAGBA competition post

Here are a few photos from the NYS&W Colored Angora Goat Breeders Associaton (CAGBA) Nationals competition.

The CAGBA Nationals competition was at New York Sheep and Wool show in Rhinebeck NY on 10/19-10/21, 2007.

I was really pleased with the Nationals show at NYS&W. We had bleachers and a big show area out between the goat barn and the buck tent. We had a pretty good audience, too.

This is Lerris as a kid, competing in the CAGBA Nationals. He came in 3rd place. After the show, I asked the judge about Lerris's lack of horns. The judge remarked that he didn't mind because Lerris won't suffer any "safety problems" and because the judge could tell from Lerris's skull shape that I had not deliberately removed the horns.



I'm rather pleased with the photo of Lerris (thank you, brcmapgirl!) because he is standing in what I call "show dog" pose. This is a great stance because it squares up his back legs and lets everyone see his properly almost-straight-then-sloped topline. If he had curly hair on his tail, he would look ideal. Well, ok, if he had horns and curly hair on his tail, then he'd be ideal. But I'm content with what I've got, thankyouverymuch, and am happy with Lerris's 3rd place finish out of 15 competitors.
