I Would Like To Thank The Academy

Really it was an honor just to be nominated but to win Grand Champion that was fun.

I would like to thank the goatfarmer for breeding such a wonderful little doeling and then giving her up to me to show and Cathy for helping goatgirl with her handling skills. I would like to thank the judge for recognizing the princess that lies within Cora Belle and with a point of a finger set it free, and my family for not laughing when I said I was going to dress up in white and show a goat.

And since I am in such a good mood I will post a rare photo of me in my dairy whites.

I refuse to take the expression on the faces of the couple behind me personally.

WOO HOO!!! I knew you both had it in you! Congrats!!!

p.s. You look terrific in your dairy whites. Those people behind you were just sucking in air!!! =;)

Oh I wallowed all right, maskedman. I think I embarrassed my friends. Apparently exhibitors don't raise a fist and yell, "YES" when they win.

Cora Belle did get her scone Beth.

Thanks everyone for the Congrats!

Lisa said...

Congratulations! I am so excited for you both.

Thankfully Kanye West was busy that day, or I just know he would have tried to ruin the moment. He was probably rooting for some long legged Nubian.

You look great in your dairy whites and Cora Belle is beautiful, too!

I know you all had so much fun.

Good job!!

Holly said...

YAY! Good for you and Cora Belle!

so explain the dairy whites to me. Obviously it's a traditional outfit but *why* white?

Spring Lake Farm said...

Cora Belle is probably thinking, "and you expected any less???" :)

Congrats! And too funny about the expressions on the couple behind you.

Holly, When you show dairy animals it is traditional and required to wear all white...even after Labor Day. I guess white symbolizes "clean" or "milk"...who knows.

Lisa, Oh Kanye was there all right but the goatfarmer tackled him before he made it to the microphone.

Thanks to everyone for their kind comments. It was very fun and only made better because I was able to share it with you.

"Just herd the news today, Oh my" Wasn't that a little like an old Beatles tune, except I tweaked it a little! :)
Of course, Cora Belle is a princess, all of us Herron Hill goats are royalty!!
CONGRATULATIONS!! That is wonderful and if you don't mind my saying so...Both you and Cora Belle look like princesses...just Beautiful!

Goatgirl and Cora Belle,
Congratulations, Cora Belle (the horrible) is absolutely deserving of the award! I loved the pictures and your comment regarding the two people standing behind you.
