ROYAL WELSH SPRING FESTIVAL 2015
The very first British Boer Goat show at the Royal Welsh Spring Festival was a huge success thanks to exhibitors Jo & Alan Jenkins (Hornets Herd), Cathy Whale (Whalandawr Herd) along with our Beech Hay Herd. There was a great display of all ages of these goats and there was tremendous interest in the British Boer Goats. Displaying them to the public in the goat barn over the weekend with show classes on Saturday. It was a very enjoyable event and we are grateful to the RWAS for asking us to exhibit. It was a fabulous effort from these exhibitors to take so much trouble especially Cathy & K who drove over 5 hours to get there. The Boer Goat judge was the well renowned Dairy Goat judge Mr Gordon Webster who also has his own Boer Goat herd who drove over 6 hours from Aberdeen. Mr Webster did a superb, very thorough job, judging conformation, locomotion, teeth, teat placement and general appearance. Mr Ian Johnson was our steward and commentator for the day and gave the onlookers a very informative commentary for all of the classes.
