This week is my daughter's first year competing at the 4-H county fair.
Here she is in the shooting competition .22 rifle...
Getting her blue ribbon
Here is her "Shooting Safety Notebook" for the Art Hall.
Here is the Hello Kitty cake she made for the cake decorating category. I helped her condition the fondant, but she made everything. (All the figurines we've made with clay over the last year was good practice for her.)
She designed this robin on her own :)
Here she is with her cake in the art hall - blue ribbon.
Here is her Katahdin Hair Sheep poster for the art hall.
It received a blue ribbon, a best in class ribbon, and was selected to go to the state fair.
Goofy smile :)
Washing her ewe lamb before showing her.
She received a blue ribbon and best in class (she was the only Katahdin ewe).
Competing for Reserve Champion Ewe (2nd place) out of all ewes shown. Center girl with dark green shirt.
Competing for Sportsmanship (this was at the end of a loooong day. She was pretty tuckered by now.) I didn't mind at all that she didn't win this part --- but I was very pleased with her conduct throughout all the competitions. She was helpful to others - and others were very helpful to her! She also did her best in whatever she was doing all week.
Reserve Champion Ewe - "Cuddles" with plaque and ribbon.
Last summer, we bought our Katahdin ewes and ram from Steven & Melissa Bull of Red Barn Katahdin Farms in Iowa. Their web page is: www.redbarnkatahdins.com
Here she is showing her market lamb, "Leroy," for the auction. She was not happy to sell him but she kept her composure. He had a rate of gain of .6774193 which earned him a blue ribbon.
