Taking time to appreciate little things

Good morning.

Thursday arrived at the fair. Although we did not show in any shows that day, it doesn’t mean it wasn’t a busy day.

We got to sleep in a little since we did not have to get anything ready to show. Once we got up, we started off the morning as usual, taking care of the animals at the house.

We then went to the fairgrounds. Once we got there, we made our rounds feeding, watering and making sure the animals had fresh bedding.

After the animals were taken care of, we walked through some of the buildings. We made our way to the conservation building and looked at the snakes and the new fish display. The new display looks really nice and makes it easier to see the fish.

It was now time for lunch, so we stopped by the pork producers booth and got our food and then went back to the goat barn and ate.

After lunch was over, it was time to start getting our dairy goats ready for the show Friday. After we washed them, we then trimmed up their legs and checked their hooves.

Once the goats were done, I was able to go and watch the supreme showmanship competition. I want to congratulate all of the participants, as it is very difficult to make it to that point.

After the competition was over, I went back to the goat barn, where our 4-H goat leader, Shannon, made goat milk ice cream. It was very good.

After a final check on the animals, it was time to head home for some rest. Friday morning was going to come early.

Your 4-H friend,

Allison Wynn
