At the risk of sounding daft but here goes.
I bought 2 yearling golden Guernsey billys that are registered and was wondering if shows have classes for Billy's. They where bought for the kids I also have 6 Boer x nannies to keep them company

There are some British Goat Society recognised male shows - usually early in the summer and not that widely spread over the country. So depends a bit of where you are. Some are "Male & Youngstock" shows only (usually only a one-day event) and some shows for milking goats also have male classes, these normally require an overnight stay (for the girls), or if you only have males, you can turn up before 10am normally just for the day.


In order to show goats at BGS shows ALL goats over the age of 12 months in your herd will have to have tested negative to CAE (blood test) within 12 months of the show. Any goats that you are adding to your herd also have to have a negative CAE certificate. Kids can be shown on their dam's certificate.


Given that your boys are horned, you have to make sure they are well behaved and you can lead them (on either a halter over their face - better for horned boys or on a collar) as goats are shown while being led. You should also practice standing them "four-feet-square" and be able to turn them.
