4H day in Elliott County, part 2

post #154
        Today I promised goats, beef cows, sheep, pigs, and rabbits, but I also prefer to post  decent photos.  For some reason, I didn't do as well with the pigs, so I will be leaving them out.  My apologies to all porker fans!  These photos all come from the showing of the animals, late afternoon during the 10 hour 4H day on August 28, 2013.

Issac shows his beef cow that goes on to win the top prize of the day and then be sold for $1,400!

Gracey's sheep is the grand champion!

Next: rabbits, two in the cage and one to carry

 Congratulations to all the kids and their families and their 4H leaders for a job very well done!
