Elizabeth doesn't have as much time now to read over 150 books in a year. She took fourteen Pygmy goats to the Sandusky County Fair, and she, with some help from family and friends, had to transport those goats, feed them a couple times a day, clean out pens, and, of course, show them on Wednesday and Friday.
Friday was the most successful day, when she and her Pygmy goats competed in Open Classes, meaning people of all ages could show their goats. She had a few first place winners, including one class that consisted of three goats, all from the same sire. But, it was Fred, her first goat, and, as I said, the elder of the herd, who carried the day. Fred was first in his class, Wethers 3 years and over, and then he was Reserve Grand Champion Wether.
Congratulations, Elizabeth and Fred. And, congratulations to your family and friends who worked so hard to tend and show the goats.
