Hmmm.....it says legal resident of the States but I won't tell if you don't.  I want to do it just for fun....the chances of me winning aren't particularly high anyway....I'm only an ok judge and have terrible luck in contests  ;D

Justme...don't worry about that goats....they are a lot like little beef.  Now sheep on the other hand are a pain if you can't touch, at least to me.
