It's a tie in musical chairs-with-goats at the third annual Goatalympics as Calista Kountz, left, and Mikila Anderson arrive at the same time. The judge ruled both could not continue in this round but they received ribbons as did all participants. Calista's goat is a Nigerian dwarf and Mikila's is a Nubian Boer cross. The event in Monroe at the Evergreen State Fairgrounds is for pet goats and a to raise funds for New Moon Farm, a goat-rescue farm in Arlington. There were 31 categories for the ruminants and people to compete in ranging from foot races, longest ears, longest horns and biggest wattle. Goats wearing bandanas will be available for adoption at New Moon Farm.
