Picture 11. Audra Koelewyn & Chipmonk
While all of the Champions (human & caprine) we post are special, this pair definitely earned a place in our hearts. Audra has a serious medical condition that she has been battling for 7 years of her young life. Only 3 weeks before her Fair she spent a week in the hospital for a procedure and recuperation. She did not have the stamina to stand through the market goat show, so she used a wheelchair assisted by older sister Madilyn. Chipmonk was shown with a halter, and in the way special animals just know how they need to act, he was a perfect gentleman.
As you can see, he is a really well-built goat who went on to earn 4-H Grand Champion and Supreme Champion. The pair captured the hearts of the Fair spectators and Sale buyers. Not only did Audra earn a good price for her Supreme Champion, but she also received him back as a gift. Chipmonk continues to live at the Koelewyns' home in a pasture with his donkey-friend Jack. A fairytale ending for a deserving goat.
Special thanks to Jim Brem for placing Chipmonk with Audra and allowing us to be part of such a great team!
