Man, I love hobnobbing with my goat peoples! In any social group/competition there will be people who don't get along, but I gotta say, I haven't found it yet! I love going to shows or goat events to meet the other crazy goat lovers. I just got back from the Spokane Fair and I'm just dying to participate next year. So here's the events I hope to/want to attend in the coming months.
