Judge: Ainsley Henry

"I started my goat journey by leasing a fiber goat for 4H and soon after became fascinated with breeding and showing fiber goats. I purchased my first Pygora goats in 2018 and my herd has only grown since then. I have bred and shown fiber goats and Shetland sheep in 4H and FFA for 6 years. After shadowing judges and learning about Cashmere, Angora, and other fiber goats I fell in love with judging goats and their fiber. I judged the OFFF 2023 Cashmere goat show and I am now a sanctioned Pygora goat judge."
