Why is show participation important as a breeder?
Although our primary focus is not as show exhibitors, it is important to us that our breeding stock upholds/excels at meeting breed standards and conformation. Therefore, 1-2 times per year, we select a handful of our breeding stock (does & bucks) and participate in MGR-sanctioned shows. This allows us to receive feedback from a number of qualified judges regarding the conformation and condition of our breeding stock. As breeders, we are serious about promoting good health and good conformation. Conformation is necessary for the long-term productivity and sustainability of the individual goat and ultimately, the herd.
In 2017, we participated two shows - the Iowa's Premier Myotonic Goat Show and the MGR Midwest Myotonic Goat Show. We took 11 goats to Iowa and 7 goats to Oklahoma.
In 2018, we also participated in two shows. At the Texas Myotonic Show Down, in addition to showing breeding stock, we introduced some of our 'new arrivals' in the pee-wee classes. This was a first showing of the offspring from sires 'Bear' & 'Jaxson'. We also participated in the MGR Louisiana Lapinappe in the Fall, taking mostly junior bucks & does.
In 2019, we participated in just one show - the Texas Myotonic Show Down. We took a mix of young Sr. does & bucks, older Jr. does, and a handful of 2018 Winter kids (total 15 goats).
