• The most important thing to do at the fair…

    Sure greasy fair food, carnival rides and games are what we all look forward to when we go to the fair each summer. There aren’t many things better, or more “American” than enjoying a summer night at the fair. Every year growing up it was tradition that our family would jump in the car, drive 45 minutes to Puyallup, WA and attend our state fair. It is the biggest fair in Washington and part of the reason I looked forward to going to school every fall…each student gets one free fair ticket at the beginning of the school year.

Now I’m an intermediate, so I have to learn to judge the goats and I will be able to see how good our babies will be as show goats. The sire goat we bred E.B with looks like a s’more so I want the babies to look like their father so I can name it S’mores, haha. I’m nervous that E.B won’t be able to deliver the babies by her…
