Spring is here, the Spring Shows are in full swing... Grab your bag and let's GO...!

Kidding has been on full speed since March.  Bottle babies all over the place, had to dam raise a few, to many to care for properly and work a full time job.  Love my bottle babies.  What have we been doing the last month or so...?  Sit for a spell and find out...

Photo to the right are the winnings at Forever Goat Show in Palmetto, Florida.

We traveled to Dade City, Fl the 3rd week of March to a great goat show.  Competition tough, we won first in the Yearling milker Class, Oldesouth Diva Diamond and placed 2nd or 3rd in the other milker classes, nothing to break the door down over.  Jrs, Oldesouth Black Diamond won a large sr jr class, but nothing beyond.  Little Oldesouth Rain Deesse won seconds.  Our buck Oldesouth Blue Blanc Sabr won a class of under two bucks and two seconds, also competetive classes.

Two weeks later we headed to Palmetto, Fl with SunRa and Sunshine freshening as soon as we had gotten home from Dade City.  The milk was on.  The photo below is Oldesouth Blue Blanc Sabr who has a leg towards his championship with Grand Champion SR Buck and two reserve championships.

My mom, Beverly Bousson is pictured below with her friend.  They live near the Palmetto Show and came to visit and enjoy the day feeding bottle babies, we took Sunra's kids and Sunshine's kids, a total of seven with us.


My cousin Michelle came to help as well and we enjoyed good food, good company and a great day!
Winner of the day was SG NC Promisedland SIA Sunra 3*M AR, 4*D, +DAR.  She won two Grand Championship SR does in milk and one Reserve, finishing her SGCH in ADGA.  She also won two AGS legs and are checking into seeing if she had earned an AGS leg when she won the ADGA leg for her to be a MCH as well.  Stay tuned for the final conformation.  (Below left)

Our weekend was long and we will end this adventure with some kids.  We are breeding to improve the Nigerian Dwarf breed and slowly but surely hope to prove it.
