Passing the soap torch along
May 31, 2016 Update:   1) My middle daughter, Grace is now making soap too.  Great vegan soap!  Her online link is:  http://www.bonanza.com/booths/YesteryearsGirl  If you're local, you can find her (and her dad and little sister) at the  Midland Community F...

A few notes I took:
(if I have any information wrong or quotes wrong, please correct me!)

"Dairy goats peak up to six years old."
"Not advisable to score dairy goat under a year old."
"Do not keep or cull a goat based on ONE person's opinion, regardless of who the one person is."
"Dairy goats generally score better in Autumn than Spring."
"How dairy goats move, handles themselves, adds to overall score."
"Good to have balance of strength and dairy."
High dorsal on hips = not good.
Narrow chest = not good.
Young stock - hold off on appraisal: doe under 2 with no kids; buck under 1.

And a new favorite quote Samantha was sporting on her T-shirt:
"Yes, actually the world does revolve around my goats."
