Show day started early, we were up at 4;30am and at the fairgrounds shortly after 7am after an hour drive. That make for a long day! (Hey Andrew, got a smile to go with that swagger?)
The heifers had been prepped and re-prepped and prepped some more now it was the kids' turn. These harness type things held their numbers.
Waiting patiently to enter the ring.
More waiting, so he grabbed a brush and made the tail, excuse me switch, look fluffy, again...
Andrew's up and entered the ring. His heifer mooed all he way around the show ring, constantly.
Talking to the judge...
Headed into the final placement line up, middle of the pack! Go Andrew!
Faith's up next, and headed into the ring with an uncooperative heifer. Stubborn, man is she stubborn. I hear this tends to be the case with Holsteins...
Faith was able to get her under control and they did better after that.
Final placement line up. Middle of the pack. Go Faith!
Turns out that I didn't miss the 4-H show deadline like I thought, so Faith will be at the fair again this weekend showing in 4-H. And Thursday both Faith and Andrew will be showing Holsteins and Ayrshire's for a friends farm, they are excited and cannot wait to be back in the show ring. What a great experience for them.
