Now entering your animal in the fair is no easy task. There are more rules and regulations than you could ever imagine....all designed to keep animals healthy and safe but daunting none the less. I just didn't get my act together in time to have the cyst removed and her left ear re-tattooed. I have been preoccupied with insurance adjusters from our grand theft auto in Sin City.
Talk about complicated!
Cora Belle is perfectly fine with all this. She didn't want to go to the fair anyway. Sure she could show off her beautiful figure but there is Filbert to consider. Who will take care of him in her absence? He would be heartbroken if his Cora Belle, his strength, wasn't with him. He might have to be put in with Moly and Ruckus. Heaven forbid. He would spend three days calling to her, much to the neighbors' dismay. Cora Belle needs to stay home and care for him. He doesn't care if she has a little pea size imperfection.
I will go to the fair anyway. The goatfarmer says I can show Boxcar Betty. Betty is Cora's sister and they are almost twins. I can help and learn all I need to know for next time. And beside I bought a new pair of white pants because one of the rules is.....you must wear white. NO SHORTS.
Do you know how hard it is to find white pants, in the fall, and in talls? Complicated.
It's been thirty years since I've shown a goat and I know one thing for sure, it's gotten complicated.
No thank you.....I'd rather stay home.
