 Going to the Kentucky State Fair has a whole new meaning for Abraham Lincoln Elementary School fifth grader Alexis Grimes and her younger brother, Jamie. The two competed in the State Goat Show after advancing from the LaRue County Fair this past August.


At the state level, Alexis placed third overall in class showmanship and eighth overall in showmanship. She also placed fourth in commercial doe with her goat Sally, 11th in market show with goat Mimi, and 15th in market wether with goat Nibbles.

First grader Jamie placed second in the Novice Skill-a-thon which is a written test. He also earned participation ribbons in showmanship and market show with his goat Nibbles.
