We have had the most amazing time. The girls are coping with the separation from the goats remarkably well. Better than I did with my first 4-H animal. I think being able to load the animals themselves and seeing how calm the animals were helped- the pigs are a different thing but goats are so gentle. I’m trying very hard not to think about what the rest of the goat’s day was like but the tears come anyhow.
Our fair buyers were so incredibly generous. The fair had the highest sales ever. Average goat prices were $15.00 per pound. It is hard work but like any summer job it helps to be rewarded.
Phew. So glad to be at this point but a little heart-sore with it.
