Here are some miscellaneous photos of the kids washing, practicing, and showing their animals that week.
At the wash stations- one of my favorite parts of fair is washing the animals. Era laundry soap gets the lamb's wool so white and then they smell amazing too. :)
This is Shasta. She wanted to nibble the camera.
Heidi and Shasta are ready to go out in the show ring.
Lining the sheep up for the judge to look at: Heidi is on the left and Hailey is in her Rimrock FFA jacket on the right. The girls were in the same quality class because their sheep both weighed exactly 129 pounds. (We thought that was a strange coincidence!) For showmanship class they compete against kids their own age.
I'm going to post the boys and their pigs in part two because this long post messed up last night and I'm having to redo the whole thing!
