Summer Show

    Summer is the start of shows and fairs and as a 4-H family we really look forward to going to some great Invitational shows and fairs.

    We live in town but our boys love 4-H. Our oldest shows beef, dairy, rabbit and tractor. This is our younger sons first year in rabbit. 
    Lots of prep (by the 4-H youth) goes into training and getting the calves looking their best at the show. The judge makes his decisions after several heats and many trips around the ring.

    And then calls them in, in order of placing. Lots of different breeds in each age group. I love their different colours and markings.

    In Conformation the groupings are by calf age, and in Showmanship by the showperson's age.

    Pure Charolais loveliness (the Charolais breed originated in Charolles/Charolais, France.) Aren't they gorgeous girls? We are so thankful to the cattle owners that allow our son to learn and show with their animals.

    Camping is part of it sometimes too. But the scenery is worth it! We are really enjoying summer here (even with the heat). Hard to believe in only one month we are back to school!
