Junior Nationals

Right now we're up in a little northern Iowa town for the Maine Anjou National Junior Heifer Show.  The girls brought 3 heifers. We are lucky enough to borrow my parents (new to them) camper & stay at the fairgrounds.  So wonderful to have a place to nap Wyatt & cook (if we want) & get cleaned up during the day.

Well, the weekend up here was great!  We had tons of fun relazing & camping & playing & napping.  Then Sunday came.  Check-in welcome party, more work, a little more play. 
Sunday Night & Monday............well, they just weren't fun.  I ran (5 hours) home to haul my piggies for 5 hrs & then came back up.

Today (Tuesday) we had a Fitting Contest.  A.Cowgirl was in it with 2 other girls from Iowa.  They had so much fun!! I had TONS of fun watching the 3 dads!! 

 Poor guys just couldn't take it as the girls were doing their best job (but it wasn't "right").  They were cringing, shaking their heads & trying not to let the yells under their breath get too loud.  The girls were smiling & working & having fun!!

So far its been a great week!  I'll try to keep you (kim) posted as the week goes along

I think that I mentioned about 7 weeks ago via TWITTER that Rosie & Chilli had a litter of Puppies. 
And now is the time when I show you cute puppy pictures so that you will be enticed to have one for your very own!

You can see from this picture how cute and colorful the black tri's are!  We have 2 boys & 1 girl Black Tri.

This little guy is a lover, but I think he's going to work too!  He doesn't like anyone coming under his tire (on the semi-trailer) to get him for bed.  So cute when he barks & gets all ruffled up!

Remember, all of these puppies have great dispositions! 

This little boy is a cutie that wants to work!  He will heel the girls & play
We have 3 Merle's Left.  2 boys & 1 Girl.  All three have beautiful colored eyes.  Both Blue and Brown in each eye.  Rosie's eye's are split down the center and half blue/half brown.

We are starting to learn their personalities, and some will be great working dogs, some will be wonderful city dogs & pets.
