We would like to give you some background about the herds in the Thunder Flats Farm Family (say that five times fast) before we embark on our blogging journey. The Yabani Acre herd belongs to Justin and he began with Nigerian's in 2016, with his first show being REDGA in 2017. In 2017 Tiffany also began to grow her herd under Dixie Manor, but did not begin showing until REDGA in 2018. The youngest of the bunch, Ethan, has also decided that he would like to raise dairy goats and has boldly decided to name his herd THUNDER HERD, fitting with the farm name. Each one of the herds has a different primary breed; Yabani Acre = Toggenburg's, Thunder Herd = La Mancha's, and we are two of the alpines from Dixie Manor.
While we were strutting our stuff I (Plumette) received a rosette for "Best of Breed Jr. Division" and Keepsake Dancer received rosettes for being the "Reserve Jr. Champion", "Jr. Grand Champion", and "Best of Breed Jr. Division".
You'll hear more from the rest of the herd members later on as we go to more shows!
