Cattle Show

  This last weekend the family went to a cattle show where a friend of ours daughters were showing their steers.  We really had a good time.  You would never think that sitting in a cold arena watch people lead different breeds of heifers around would be fun, but it really is.  You can really see the work that this young people put into their heifers and also the ones that don't put as much work into theirs.  You appreciate all these farming families do to foster the love for these animals.  I think the steers got their coats styled more than I do my hair.  It was great.  If you ever get a chance to go to a cattle show or pig or lamb for that matter, I would definatly do it!  It is something you and your kids will find very enjoyable.  I hope you like the pictures I shot.  They are not very good.  It is hard to capture the heifers while they are moving. 

Walking the heifer through it's paces, to see how it walks.

Judging it's stance.

Doing a little grooming.

Getting the heifer into it's final judging position.

And the best thing is mini donuts to snack on!!!
 To make things even better is our friend's daughters both won Grand Champion in their division and one won Supreme Champion Breeding Heifer. 
Love to all,  Sara
