All fun, some play and plenty of shaggy goats

THERE'S more to school than maths and English at Oakey State High.

The school is renowned for their prize winning goat club, with their angoras sweeping up ribbons across the show circuit.

Goat captain Tayla Lord said at the end of the the goat competition at the Allora Show, the club won more ribbons than any Warwick school.

"We've got ten ribbons at the moment,” she said.

"And we've just won champion ewe.”

Caleb said already the team had taken their goats to plenty of shows across the region.

"We've been to and will go to Oakey, Pittsworth, the Ekka, beef expo, Farmfest, Crows Nest, Goombungee and Cooyar,” he said.

"There's not any we really miss.

"We'll definitely be at the Clifton show next weekend, and hopefully we pick up some more ribbons there.”

The Goat Club are in charge of every bit of maintenance their beloved show stock require.

"We feed them, brush them, there's a lot of washing to do before a show, and we have to clip them regularly,” Caleb said.

"But we love it.”
