Ok, it's in the calender.... I did it myself!!!![:0] I know it's not a big deal but I'm just not very good at finding and figuring my way around doing computer things. Eh eh, I did it though.

Do you think it's worthy of a 'sticky' Kate?

I haven't got the details handy but I think there is a dinner organised for the Saturday evening. Bookings for rooms can be made at the same place as the dinner..... if you can manage the trip up, there has been arrangements for people who want to stay overnight or the Friday night as well. I can ferret out the details if you can make it up to Hamilton. The actual venue for the dinner and the motel rooms is in Hamilton and rides to Emmas for the field day can be arranged. It will be a good opportunity to meet other owners of goats and learn and share experiences.

Sorry, I should have mentioned that in the first post.

Me too, home now I mean. It was a good day wasn't it TKP. I managed to position myself next to the four goats Emma had in a pen in the shed we were all in so I was doubly happy. Oooh that wee Misha of Emmas (a gorgeous AN doeling (is that right? doeling?) well anyway, Misha knows she's something pretty special she won the champion ribbon when she was still very small which is unusual for a kid.... and her wee friend who was also rather gorgeous loved the cuddles.

Emmas dogs enjoyed the day too! I noticed Tigger paid a little attention to Mister the dog who stayed like a statue waiting to see if Tigger would continue to give him a scratch. Spike got really into the prize drawing and was racing about hoping to win something as well. Little old Holly the Staffy was tottering about hoovering up snacks off the lunch table.

It got a bit windy at one point and a couple of leftover savouries and the foil plate they were on blew onto the ground. Mister got one and Holly got the other.

Tomorrow is another long day with the ANBSNZ AGM in Hamilton. My head is doing its best to split open and the two measly panadol I took are being laughed at. I've feed bins to gather in, fill and take out again, two goats to milk and hay to be dished out, feed bins refilled for the morning and then I might just crawl into bed and read a bit of Harry Potter before turning the light off. It's a sort of ritual, don't like to try and sleep without a bit of literature wafting about the old bean.

Cup of tea first I think.
