The Livestock Show Season Begins

Here we go again! My children are looking for show goats, again. Today, we went to an auction at Harbour Livestock, just west of Gatesville. There were people there from over one hundred miles away!

I have to admit, they had a whole lot of very pretty little kids going up for auction. They took quite a bit of time making them even prettier - each of the kids had been polled and clipped.

The bidding on the first one started at $500 and then exploded into the stratosphere, selling eventually for $1950. This is for one, count 'em, one show goat! The next one, and the next one, and the next one - the bidding exploded over $1000! OJ, a few started at $300, but they were still bed way up. Some actually sold for $350 or $400, but most were much higher.

After the first forty were sold for those astronomical prices, we left. Maybe, there will be more reasonable prices at the next auction....
