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
