Goat show gets late start

Judge Christi Black-Montoya had to navigate through heavy storm damage from Hilliard and was a little late, but 2013 Logan County Junior Fair Goat Show went off without a hitch Thursday.

The action got started with the dairy goat contest pitting siblings Blake and Amber Wenger of Bellefontaine against one another, with the elder Blake coming away with the junior champion female and Amber taking reserve junior champion honors.

Amber was in the winner’s circle later with the senior champion female.

Blake, 14 and Amber, 11 continued their winnings ways with each taking top showmanship trophies in the senior and junior divisions, respectively. Bryden Penhorwood, 13, of East Liberty, was the top showman in the intermediate contest.

Heavy with competition, the market goat contest ended with Grace Barger, 15, of Bellefontaine, returning to grab grand champion market goat honors, with Jackson Grimes, 12, of Indian Lake, taking the reserve grand champion banner.

Grace then showed the champion meat production doe and earned another trophy. Hannah Gross, 14, of Bellefontaine, took the reserve champion meat production doe prize.
