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.

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.

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 2014 and a nominated doe kids in November or December 2014, the kids are automatically eligible to compete in 2015 whether the does is re-nominated for 2015 or not.
10. No refunds will be made for any reason. The responsibility of re-nomination rests solely with the current owner.
1. Nominee status of the dams for all kids entered in FGG Futurity shows will be checked during pre-registration for the shows by FGG staff. Kids from dams that are not on the current Nominee List may not compete (with the exceptions of those kids described in item 9 under eligibility).
The following Futurity classes will be offered:
The judging of Futurity kids will be conducted in separate age classes at participating shows.
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
The payout will be announced after entries have been
