    Heeeey Guys!! Sorry, Computer crashed, so I couldn't update on the wonders of the fair!! Weeeeeeelll... I wound up not taking Sam, because his wings were coming in funny. so instead, I rustled up a little tyke I like to call "Kenny" after Big Kenny Alphin from the band Big'n'Rich, because Big Kenny always wears a tophat, and well... Here's my kenny: [​IMG] y'all get it now?
    and Naughty is still Kenny's dad...
    [​IMG] So i took Kenny and Kate, and Naughty to fair. Kenny merely was a muscovy young drake, and seeing as Naughty was very well behaved, I brought him up for showmanship. In the pressure, I forgot the info I wanted to tell the judge, Like "Their name comes from the word Musco Duck, meaning mosquito duck because they eat mosquitoes" and "they are a treedwelling bird" . But the judge was still amazed that i brought a duck of his size (a duck in general actually!!) for showmanship!! I got a white, because I couldn't turn him around to get him out head first. buuuut... thats fine. better luck next year!! ;) here's a quick pic of me, the judge, and Naughty. the funny thing was, for the breed class, the judge looked at me and said: "I cannot believe you are carrying this bird up to the table." He was massive. I put him at like 15 pounds!!
