pygmy goats Lots of noisy kids showed up Apr. 13 at the first youth Pygmy Goat Show at the Monroe Fairgrounds, where butting heads was a favorite pastime. The human children, however, were much better behaved.
   Twelve-year-old Carly and her brother Kyle Bishop, 8, both of Woodinville, placed second in their divisions showing their goat, Boo Bear.
   Carly and Kyle are both students at Bear Creek Elementary and are hoping to go to the State Fair in Puyallup with their 4-H Club Mixed Masters.
