HD wanted to pet the bull calf and then he let him sniff his hand and promptly got slobber all over!
Then they took off for the show ring! HD held James’ hand with one hand and the end of the rope with the other. They walked the calf around the ring just like the big kids do in front of judges.
He did such a good job! He’s got five more years until he can join 4-H and show his own livestock, but this was good practice!
All the kids received a participation ribbon.
HD says “I won!”
AJ slept through the whole show, but was wide awake afterwards while we walked around the fair.
It was perfect weather this past week for the 4-H kids at Westfair. I’ve been there when it’s been so hot and humid before. HD is only three years old now, but it will be here before we know it and he’ll be showing his own livestock at the county fair!
