We are so proud of all the goats but mostly the kids who showed them.  We have a great bunch of young adults, their parents AND grandparents enjoying the goat world.  Keep it up!

2014

Another new year of winners.  We attended a couple of ABGA shows this year and while we didn’t win there we have gathered a lot of very valuable knowledge and experience.  We made many new friends and watched some great goats.

We took our daughter and two of our doelings to the Treasure Valley Classic in Homedale, Idaho.  We attended Maddie Fenton’s Fitting and Showing clinic the day before the show and learned some very valuable information.  Thank you Maddie! On Sunday, Marie and Rock Garden Boers Rhiannon won her breeding class and then went on to win overall Reserve Grand Champion breeding doe.  It was a great day for our family.

 Union County Fair

At the Union County Fair we leased Rock Garden Boers Rhiannon and Stonebrier Farm’s Rich Delight to Truvey Miller to show in the breeding classes.  Both goats took first over all in their breeding age class and Rich Delight went on to take over all Reserve Grand Champion for meat goats.  Yay Truvey!

Kitsap County Fair

Doug and I attended the 2014 Kitsap County Fair in Bremerton, Washington.  Again the Harper girls did not disappoint.   image Amelia and Hobbes won Grand Champion in Showmanship in her age class     image   Addie and Calvin won Reserve Grand Champion in Showmanship in her age division.   image And for the second year in a row Amelia and her wether Hobbes won Grand Champion Market Goat.  We couldn’t be  more proud of these two girls.  We will miss them next year as they travel out of state with their parents.     image Tyler Baugh and his wether Dude aka Cupcake placed third in the market class at the Benton Franklin County Fair in Washington.  Way to go Tyler!   image       Also two of our doelings we sold to to Mandy Rogers went to the Klamath County Fair.  Aretha won Grand Chanpion in her breeding class and If won Reserve Grand Champion.  Wow how exciting!  Aretha is third from the right.  Mandy said that Aretha received lots of compliments on her bone structure and they said If was very feminine looking.

2013

The following pictures are of Addie and Amelia Harper with their market wethers.  They purchased two of our January wethers and named them Ford and Chevy.  Doug and I traveled to the Kitsap County Fair to watch these talented girls show their beefy boys.  Thank you Addie and Amelia for purchasing our boys and creating such awesome market wethers!  Ford weighed 93 lbs and Chevy weighed a whooping 116 lbs!
