Perfect weather saw huge crowds for both the Friday night carnival and Show Day on Saturday at the 161st Kyneton Show on the weekend. 

The Bellchambers brothers from Newham, with a mother and her baby goat, were among the hundreds of entrants. 

Dad Andrew said the boys had been training the pair all week, catching them in the paddock and practising leading them up and down in the yard so they were ready to perform in the Pet Parade. 

Andrew said he had to get them all in the horse float to get them to the show but it was worth the effort. 

The pygmy cross miniature goats, bred by the family, won the pet sheep, goat or calf class and came runner-up in the overall pet parade against a menagerie of creatures.
