Well our time has come.  It has been fun.  It has been a lot of work.  I walked away very proud of all the kids.  To see them work so hard and do so well. These kids showed up in the freezing, sleeting weather.  They were up early to feed and water their animals and had to keep stalls clean, all very challenging.  

All their hard work comes down to a few minutes.  It is hard letting go of an animal that you have raised, I hope it gets easier through the years. Although I don’t think it does.  Only a few of the kids walk away with prizes, but they are all winners!  

The judge did an amazing job even though Chester wasn’t what he was looking for.  The judge was there for over 9 hours.  He didn’t even take a lunch break.  He ate a sandwich that someone handed him while he continued to judge.  He did that to help us all get out of there before the weather got too bad.  

We have really enjoyed our time at the barn and are so very thankful to Josh and Chyna at Vincent Farms for helping teach Emily this year.  They have been great and we look forward already to next year! Next year? Yeah, I can’t believe I just said that either.
