|We have some great friends who let us borrow their little trailer. It carried 3 adult does and 2 kids to the shows. The truck is Hubby's work truck and we were so happy it was back from Texas so we could use it to pull the trailer.|
|In the Showmanship Ring with Pearl. He came in 4th place with the 4H division, 7th place overall.|
I wish I had been given a list of things to bring to a show. Vet2Be's 4H leader is very good about sharing when I forget something. I wanted to have a list somewhere to remind me next year of what to bring. Just in case someone else needs a list, too, here it is:
- Shampoo or shampoo mixed with water in a spray bottle
- short leash for the wash area
- short hose for the wash area
- 2 or three old towels (for washing)
- clippers and extension cord
- baling twine
- 2 or 3 biners or clips
- 2 or 3 bungee cords
- ADGA goat registration papers
- camp chairs
- extra water bottles and snacks in a cooler
- hay (or alfalfa pellets if your goat is used to pellets)
- milk stand (with wheels if you can put some on!)
- milking pail and milking equipment
- a cooler with ice if you want to bring the milk home. We freeze water in an old 2-liter soda bottle.
- buckets! 5 gallon for water in the stall and a few small ones for grain on the milk stand or .... we brought 3 small buckets and used every one of them.
- 4H Project Book
- Snow shovel or manure fork for cleaning the stall when you are done (if you have room for a wheelbarrow in the truck, that is a helpful, not only for cleaning the stall but for moving your stuff around at the show)
- some cash.... just in case of emergency
- First Aid kit
- Sunscreen and a hat if you live someplace you will be out in the sun alot.
