2014 Litchfield County 4-H Fair

Posted on August 13, 2014 at 5:00 PM

The first weekend in August was our annual Litchfield County 4-H Fair at the Goshen Fair Grounds, Goshen, CT. We had a great time and did very well in all our classes! Luna & Phoenix did a repeat of last year and took Best Doe in Show & Best Junior Doe in Show! The club also decided to add a "Best Udder of Show" which Luna also won. Our Nubians did extremely well and also took champion in the junior and senior show and best udder of breed, this was great since our Nubian kids were the youngest there and they are our first 2nd generation kids under our herd name! Its always very encouraging to see how far our herd has come in a few short years, this proves that dedication and hard work really pays off! Now its time to plan for the rest of our show season and begin our 2014/15 breeding plans! :)

Congratulations to all the exhibitors and I wish you luck for the rest of your 2014 show season!
