4-H Kids Get Ready For The Fair
The barn door swings open to the sounds of excited bleating, and 15-year-old Garrett Pfeiler catches a young Boer goat as it attempts to sneak past him to freedom. Sunlight slanting across the straw-strewn floor reveals three cream and brown kids, each wearing a name tag dangling from one ear. “Jack” and his twin, “Frost,” are pretty tame since they were bottle-fed for a month in the garage, while “Ivan,” born a few weeks later, hangs back shyly. The goats are a 4-H project for the 2014 Dubuque County Fair, to be held July 22-27.
