Angora Goat Crazy at the Iowa State Fair

 
 
Iowa State Fair has been the center of the world recently.   Those who are running for the president of the United States all congregated at the Iowa State Fair, some even had the pork chop on the stick in their hands.   
 
For the Angora goat enthusiasts, Iowa State Fair is the location of the Colored Goat National Show where all the top goat people attend.  
 
 
The judge for the national show is Dr. Fred Speck from Texas, Dr. Speck is the ultimate Angora goat authority.    Next to Dr. Speck is our ultimate rabbit authority Allen and Randy who are exhibiting their goats under Eureka Mohair moniker.



Another familiar face for rabbit enthusiasts is Eric and his partner Gabe who also drove a long way from PA to exhibit their Angora goats.
 
 
 
Kathi is the helper and photographer of the goat show, here she is with Gabe.

Nancy comes all the way from Arkansas to join the fun with Josh and Randy.    Isn't it interesting to see the president and vice president in a goat show?

 
Allen and Eric lead their goats in the show ring.

The eventual winner: Allen and his goat!
 

The other big winner: Randy and his goat.

Ida (left) and mama Danibella got together at the exercise pen.   They both had a glories past that they could reminisce.

 
 
Danibella tells Ida, "My dear daughter, did you know that I was on the cover of Domestic Rabbits when I was a baby?" 


 

Ida says, "Mom, but I was on TV, Steve Harvey even danced with me!"




My fans took picture of me when I appeared.
 

German TV crew even came all the way to film me and Franchesca.

 

TV host Sandra played with me and Franchesca.




Now our glory days are over, but we still have each other.

Freddie Gets His First Hair Cut





What's up, mom, you want to take my pretty pictures again?


What are you doing?

This is strange, mom, what are you doing to me?

I am shocked!

This is not good, should I run?


You mean you want this side too?


I am trapped, what do I do?


I am sad.

I am depressed.


I want to hide my face.


Mom, do you still love me now that I don't have my pretty coat?
