Show season has arrived, and Fall Fairs are not long away.
Our boys are in 4-H dairy, beef and rabbit clubs this year. Our youngest son Josh is on the left here at the dairy owners' farm. It is his first year showing. He is 13 and already 5'10". A trip to Marks for work/show boots set me back $160 today. Hopefully his feet are finished growing ;-) Kyle, on the right, is 15 and helps his brother out a lot with walking, washing and blowing, and clipping their 4-H dairy calf projects. Kyle is the experienced showman in the family, you can see more here, here and here.
This is Kyle's Holstein calf for this year. He is preparing for a show with the older members this week.
Josh will be showing a Brown Swiss born in January. We love 4-H and the people involved are awesome. And you don't have to live on a farm to take part.
