We have county in a week and a half. Both kids have a steer and pen of rabbits. One of those steers goes immediately to Harvest House for the cash-knocker. I think we will be fighting one another to see which of us gets to beat him into the trailer. One of those!
The other goes to SA to show light weight Shorthorn (plz Lord, on both accounts).

Well our county is after 2 of the majors so we have to have two sets of animals if we want to show at County and a major. We have 4 goats on feed. 2 for San Antonio and 2 for County. Got my daughter and son both showing

Growing up our county show was the week before Fort Worth so it worked great

Then we will be at the San Antonio Gilt Show, San Antonio Barrow Show (dark wave), TELS (our county show), and we will finish it out at the Houston Barrow Show (dark wave). Good Luck and Safe Travels to all the kiddos, parents and Ag Teachers/Extension Agents.

Used to show steers at San Antonio and Houston. It was always a blast. I like The Houston show better. Seems a lot more organized. Miss those days.

Well pretty tough Livestock Judging contest today at Fort Worth. My daughter’s team got 19 place out of 50 teams.

Last year my daughter was 8th place high point individual. This year she did not do very well. Hope she gets herself together for San Antonio and Houston

Well you all that have kids out there showing and getting ready for shows be careful. A kid in our barn got knocked down on Saturday evening by his Fort Worth sheep and fractured his tibia. They were supposed to be moving into Fort Worth on Thursday. Now the mother is scrambling trying to find someone to show the animal
