BURTON, Ohio — Geauga Caprine Kids 4-H club has been very busy the past few weeks. The group has spent extra meetings in July studying and learning or reviewing the information they need to master for skillathon. So far in August the group has been working with animals at the fairgrounds teaching them how to respond to commands and cooperate while being shown.

These meetings are also a time for the group to study for self improvement in showmanship.

The Geauga Caprine Kids want to thank everyone in the community who came out and supported us at the two car washes held at Chardon’s local Tractor Supply in order to purchase the crates we need to transport our birds to the butcher following the fair.
