2009 Herd Highlights
April 18 and 19, we attended the Lone Star Goat Club show in Kaufman, TX. In the first NDGA show, under judge David Wildman, we won Grand Champion Senior Buck with CHW Baywatch's The Fifth Element, who we had donated as a raffle buck. He is now owned by Pride Of Texas. Thanks to everybody who bought tickets to support the club. This was Five's first show and he misbehaved badly. Then in the dual AGS/ADGA show, we won Grand Champion Junior Doe under judge Gary Whitehead, with CHW Baywatch's Snow Queen. In the last show, which was NDGA, we won Grand Champion Junior Doe under judge Denae Henderson, with CHW Baywatch's Snow Queen again. Then we won Grand Champion Dry Doe with TX Twin Creeks DJ Spellbound. And lastly Reserve Champion Senior Buck with CHW Baywatch's Edmund Fitzgerald, who is the littermate brother to Snow Queen.
In early May, we attended the Heartland Goat Show in Norman, OK and won Grand Champion Buck in the AGS show with CHW BW Ghost Rider and Reserve Champion Senior Buck with him in the NDGA show. We won Grand Champion Dry Doe with CHW CBM Heart Of Gold and Reserve Champion Dry Doe with Piddlin Acres Piroette at eight years old.
In late May, we attended the Just Peachy Keen show in Georgia. We won Grand Champion Buck with CHW DH Born To Be Wild at eight years old. This was his 4th AGS GCH win. His 3rd official leg. Then he won champion over all the finished champion bucks there. This was under judge Will Pearson. We won grand champion junior buck under both judges with CHW CJS Douglas Fairbanks. We also won Reserve Champion Junior Doe with CHW CJS Betty Boop, Fairbanks' littermate.
In early Oct, we attended the Goats, Music and More Festival in Lewisburg, TN and won Grand Champion Dry Doe with Pride Of Texas Morning Star under both judges, Denise Hasty and Suzy Way. We won reserve champion junior doe with CHW DH Dragon's Kiss under Denise Hasty. We won grand champion junior buck with CHW #9's Werewolf Of London under Denise Hasty and reserve champion junior buck with him under Suzy Way. We also won reserve champion senior buck with CHW BW Ghost Rider under Denise Hasty.
In mid-October, we attended the Lone Star Goat Fest in Kaufman, TX and won Grand Champion Senior Buck with CHW CJS Douglas Fairbanks under judge Sandi Liska. He had just made it into the first senior buck class. Sandi said she never picks a very young buck as her champion, and knowing her judging style, I agree that's true. That she thinks they don't have enough maturity yet. But she gave Fairbanks very high praise and mentioned again what Will Pearson did, that's he exemplifies what we should all be breeding for. So we are going to be keeping, using and showing this buck. He won Reserve Champion Buck in the AGS/ADGA show under judge Tamara Taylor. We didn't stay for the Sunday show. A buck of ours owned by Pride Of Texas, CHW BW Ancient Mariner, won Reserve Champion Senior Buck under Gary Whitehead.
