Fainting Goat Guild Futurity

The Fainting Goat Guild Futurity is designed to encourage selective breeding to enhance the Fainting Goat breed and produce outstanding offspring. It is our hope that the Futurity competition will encourage breeders to think ahead toward the preservation of the Fainting Goat breed and to make smart choices within their breeding program. Collectively, these smart choices will help us produce the finest qualities for this unique breed, while staying true to breed standards. Also, the Futurity will give breeders an excellent opportunity to exhibit their animals for herd confirmation and structure, while competing for monetary prizes and awards.

ELIGIBILITY

Any doe is eligible for the Futurity provided she qualifies under the following:

1.  Open to all purebred Fainting Goat does (any doe already registered as a purebred with a Fainting Goat registry or documentation as to family linage). A registration number or family linage must accompany the nominee application.

2.  Nominations may only be made by the current owner of the doe, whether bred by the owner or purchased from
another breeder.

3.  Any number of does may be nominated by an owner.

4.  Following initial nomination, any doe sold remains eligible regardless of ownership, provided that subsequent yearly
re-nomination payments are made and the Futurity has been notified of transfer of ownership.

5.  Does may be nominated at any time before the kidding date. When a nominated doe kids, all offspring are eligible for competition as long as the doe was nominated BEFORE the kid(s) were born.

6.  Doelings from nominated does are eligible to compete in Futurity classes until she has freshened or reaches the age of one day less than 24 months, provided that subsequent yearly re-nomination payments are made by the owner of the doe. Bucklings from nominated does are eligible to compete in Futurity classes until he reaches the age of one day less than 24 months, provided that subsequent yearly re-nomination payments are made by the owner of the doe.

7.  If the nomination of the doe is not renewed, causing the doeling (now a yearling) to no longer be eligible to compete in futurity classes, then the owner of the doeling/yearling will be given the opportunity to pay the nomination fee in order to keep the doeling/yearling eligible until she either freshens or reaches the age of one day less than 24 months. If the doeling/yearling is nominated, her doelings will be eligible to compete as long as she kids within that year.

8.  If the nomination of the doe is not renewed, causing the buckling (now a yearling) to no longer be eligible to compete in futurity classes, then the owner of the buckling/yearling will be given the opportunity to pay the nomination fee in order to keep the buckling/yearling eligible until he reaches the age of one day less than 24 months.

9.  If eligible Futurity kids are born after the show season for that year has ended, the kids may show the following year whether the dam has been re-nominated or not. For example, if the last show of the season was in October 2013 and a nominated doe kids in November or December 2013, the kids are automatically eligible to compete in 2014 whether the does is re-nominated for 2014 or not.

10. No refunds will be made for any reason. The responsibility of re-nomination rests solely with the current owner.
If the nomination is not continued, previously submitted monies are relinquished by the owner.

Judging

Judges

Judges are not asked to anticipate what the doelings/yearling will look like in the future.  Instead, they are asked to judge the doelings/bucklings/yearlings based on the quality of their confirmation and structure for their age, while staying within the breed standards and focusing on herd conformation and structure.
