On Saturday we took four of our bucks to the one show(S) held in Maine for bucks.  It is actually three shows on the same day and done under three different judges.  So getting a championship in one eay/evening is possible provided your buck wins his breed classes in all three shows.
Well--Sha-sta-kovich followed in his father's footsteps.  He is three and quite the Toggenburg buck.  He was scared to death of the show ring, but he managed to win all three shows and he is now a Permanent Champion.  Quite the accomplishment for a boy who is really scared of his own shadow!!

Wow!  Congratulations and hooray for him!  Wish you were closer so we could breed our sweet Togg (Dusty) to him.  Do you think you might do frozen semen straws?  We're having a rough time finding a nearby buck, other than her father, which I don't want to use.

We need pictures of this guy!

Thanks!  No Birdie==the three buck shows are done on one day.  It's pretty hectic as they show for about three hours one after the other.  The three judges are there and they do one show and then a double ring for the other two.  It's tiring because it's fairly fast paced.  Course it helps if your buck behaves and doesn't do "airs above ground" like our boy decided to do at one point!
Our 6 year old alpine buck was really really well behaved and he "smiled" during the whole thing.  I think he likes showing.

Congrats! How awesome!

Every year I swear I am going to bring my kids to that show, since it's only about 10 minutes from my house. I can't get the days off from work. sigh....
