Our annual county livestock show was early this year. It was held January 2-4. Kade showed rabbits, goats and a heifer.
We had a horrible year with our rabbits and lost five out of eight rabbits before the show came around. We had the three remaining ones living in our kitchen in a guinea pig cage just trying to keep them alive! We placed in the bottom of both single classes we showed in.
We had some awesome goats this year. They were both in the same weight class, but Kade had a friend show the doe for him. He ended up first with his wether, Sylvester, and his friend received second with his doe, Twitty. Sylvester ended up being Reserve Grand Champion overall. Kade received 2nd place in the Jr. Goat Showmanship.
Our heifer project was so much fun this year. Clint says it will probably never be this easy again. Our Red Angus, Millie, is super gentle. It only took us a week to halter break her and teach her to lead! Kade received first in his class with Millie. We were tickled with those results. He also received 3rd place Jr. Heifer Showmanship....he had some really tough competition, so we were pumped with that placing, too.
Kade also entered the photography contest. He and Babers went and captured some really neat scenes one Sunday afternoon.
I love how Millie has her tongue stuck out!
