Youth Ambassador


                IT HAS BEEN A VERY BUSY YEAR AT MY GOAT FARM AND AS YOUTH AMBASSADOR FOR WPDGA.  I ADOPTED  MY FIRST LAMANCHA DOELING, LITTLE DANIELLE, IN APRIL OF 2009. SHE WAS QUITE DIFFERENT FROM THE GOATS  I WAS USE TO, BEING THAT I OWN NUBIANS.  HER PERSONALITY AND APPEARANCE SOON BEGAN TO GROW ON ME.  NOW I HAVE A LOVE FOR BOTH THE LAMANCHA AND NUBIAN BREEDS, WHICH IS WHAT MY HERD CONSIST OF NOW.

                IN THE MONTH OF MAY, THE WPDGA HELD A YOUTH  FIELD DAY  AT THE HOME OF DR. AND MRS. RICHARD STONEBECK.  I HELPED SEVERAL  CLUB MEMEBERS WITH DEMONSTRATIONS THROUGHTOUT THE DAY.  I ALSO ENJOYED LEARNING SHOWING TECHNIQUES FROM DR. RICK STONEBECK .  IT WAS  A VERY EDUCATIONAL  DAY.

                JUNE WAS A VERY BUSY MONTH.  I REPRESENTED THE WPDGA AT THE 4-H LIVESTOCK FIELD NIGHT IN MERCER.  I ANSWERED QUESTIONS, HANDED OUT BROCHURES,  AND HANDED OUT  SAMPLES OF DIFFERENT ITEMS  MADE FROM THE GOAT.  IT  WAS  AN  EXCITING AND EDUCATIONAL  EVENING.   LATER IN THE MONTH, I ATTENDED THE PDGA AND WPDGA GOAT SHOW IN CENTRE HALL WITH MY LAMANCHA DOELING, LITTLE DANIELLE.  FRIDAY AT THE SHOW WAS YOUTH DAY.  LITTLE DANIELLE TOOK  TWO FIRST PLACE RIBBONS AND A SECOND PLACE RIBBON. I WAS VERY PROUD OF HER. I ALSO WON THE 2009 PDGA OUTSTQANDING JUNIOR YOUTH AWARD.  I  WAS  SURPRISED  AND PLEASED WITH  MYSELF AND MY GOAT FOR THE FIRST GOAT SHOW WE EVER ATTENDED.  THE FOLLOWING TWO DAYS,  LITTLE DANIELLE WON A THIRD PLACE RIBBON EACH DAY.  I WAS STILL PROUD OF HER.  I ALSO MEET  AND HELPED MANY  NEW PEOPLE WHO ARE AS INTEREESTED IN GOATS AS I AM.  IT WAS A VERY ENJOYABLE MONTH.

                AUGUST WAS ANOTHER BUSY MONTH WITH BEING IN 4-H. THE VENANGO COUNTY FAIR WAS HELD THE FIRST WEEK OF THE MONTH. I TOOK ALL MY GOATS (5 TOTAL)  TO THE  FAIR. MY GOATS AND I DID VERY WELL AT THE FAIR, WINNING SEVERAL GRAND CHAMPION RIBBONS.   MY GOATS  AND I ALSO WON THE 4-H JUNIOR GOAT  SHOWMANSHIP AWARD AND THE 4-H JUNIOR  GOAT FITTING AWARD FOR 2009.  AGAIN, I WAS PROUD OF MY GOATS.  LATER IN THE MONTH, I REPRESENTED THE WPDGA AT THE WOLF CORNERS BARNYARD DAY.  THIS TIME I WAS ABLE TO TAKE MY GOATS  WITH ME.  I TALKED TO MANY INTERESTING PEOPLE THAT DAY ABOUT THE GOATS AND THE WPDGA.  IT WAS A VERY  EXCITING MONTH FOR MYSELF AND MY GOATS.

                THE  LAST COUPLE OF MONTHS,  I HAVE BEEN ENJOYING ALL  MY GOATS. AND I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO  THE UPCOMING KIDDING SEASON.  I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHAT 2010 HELDS FOR MYSELF AND MY GOATS.

SINCERELY,
