Cory Kidman was found to show Ollie, our show wether ... Fred and Grover's brother. Almost from the day Ollie was born, he was destined to be our show wether at the Cullman IBGA/Meat goat show. After all, Queue sons always show in Cullman. We found out the USBGA show at Upper Cumberland Goat Producers Association Goat Day and Show, May 21, 2005 had a wether show, so we decided to take Ollie so he would at least have been fitted out, and been in a ring before his big show. However, we had to find a youth to show him. At check-in Pat found a young gentleman to show him. We were a little worried about Ollie in the ring, but Cory had little difficulty with Ollie, setting him up, and leading him. They both looked great. The judge commented about how good both did in the ring. Ollie took first and the young man's smile made it worthwhile hauling Ollie to the show.

Alabama Open Market & International Boer Goat Sanctioned Show, Cullman, AL. May 28, 2005, at 80 lbs, Ollie took a fouth in a big class.

Tiffany Hallmark showed KWM's Ollie earning a first place ribbon and a Reserve Grand rosetta at 73 lbs in the Lawrenceburg Spring Classic 2005.

Tiffany took Ollie to the 4H Columbia, TN Goat Show where he took first in his class and received the overall Grand Champion rossetta. The next show Ollie was in was the Williamson County Fair where he placed fifth.

Ollie took first place in his class a the Hardin County Fair with Tifffany at the helm. (Shown above with Casey.)

It was decided that Ollie needed to lose some weight before state. So... Ollie entered the Tennessee State Fair at 9 lbs less than at the Hardin County Fair. Tiffany gave Ollie every chance to win, but in a big class, came in fourth. FOURTH AT STATE!!! We will always wonder if we had 'shaved' him down to the skin, if he would have placed better. The Texas judge seemed to like sheep-looking goats. If this had been the 'last' show for the wethers, maybe a shave, but he has at least two more shows. Ollie took a fourth at the Tennessee State Fair.

A slimmed down Ollie took a third at the Middle Tennessee District Fair. Ollie weighted in at 105 lbs.

Ollie took a third place in the TGPA Jackpot Show in Lewisburg, TN.
