We took Marmalade Emmy Lou also but she just wasn’t in the show spirit. Rachel had an impossible time with her in ring 1 which really dampens Rachel’s spirits to have a doe who is just not cooperating  and Jeremiah didn’t have it any easier in ring 2. She placed middle of the class last year at state fair in  a much longer line up of 2 year olds but when a doe just doesn’t want to walk nicely and behave, it can really hurt their placings. (Which isn’t to say she would have placed any higher if she had been behaving but it certainly doesn’t help that she wasn’t).  She wasn’t having any of it from the time she left the farm Saturday evening in the pouring rain. C’est la vie, that’s the way the cookie crumbles =).

The same can be said for Marmalade Black Poppy. By Saturday afternoon, after the youth shows that morning and by the 4th go around of the day in the afternoon, she roached her back, refused to stand or walk nicely and placed last. They are animals, not machines, I don’t fault them for that. These crazy goats.

Happy Monday!
