Congratulations to Summer Rain, the youngest of our little Toggenburg doelings. Just barely home from the Mother Earth News show in Oregon, it was off again to an ADGA dairy goat show in Spokane, Wa. Happy as a lark since there were lots of cuddles and scratches involved, little Rain managed to score herself a Reserve Grand Champion ribbon for the Jr Toggenburg show Way To Go!
only 1 more hour little Eos. Rain asleep on the floorboard will be well rested up to play tomorrow.# MENfairorbust
