Throughout our lives as homesteaders, I wanted to make sure that my family were able to know all about the animals that we have, both large and small stock. Last night, we were honored to be a part of a local jackpot show. We are proud members of the Chino Valley FFA Pals group for all of my younger kids. The 4 youngest participated in the show with their rabbits or chickens.We only brought small stock critters with us. Although they need more practice answering questions with the judges, overall they did great.
This was Trystan’s first back to the grind after being in a behavioral hospital for the last year+. He did AWESOME in the junior division! He scored 3rd place on his barred Bantam Cochin hen (I think that he named her Amy, but don’t quote this mama on that) for showman ship and 2nd place for confirmation.
Grayson is in PeeWee division still until next year. She got 1st in showmanship for her lop, Tyler.
Rowan got 4th in showmanship and second in confirmation for her lionhead rabbit, Snickers.
Berlyn got 5th in showmanship for his lionhead rabbit, Cookie Dough.
Well, we have some work to do this next month to brush up on showing and the judge questions before the fair next month. I am sure that I will write something into our homeschool program for animal science for that. 😉
And a special shout-out to Rosie Darby and her family for putting on this AMAZING show for the youth in our community at their home.
