For the next few days, I’ll be surrounded by all the sounds that make up a farm. No, I have not moved out to our barn but I am camped out at the 4-H, 2010 EXPO where the kids show and sale their animals that they have been raising for the last several months.
The last few days have been hectic as the children sheared their animals, got poster boards ready and packed to come to EXPO.
It’s amazing how much wool a lamb carries around. It’s at least 2″ thick.
There’s all kinds of interesting ways to do a job, right? 🙂
Wesley’s pig, Bacon.
Justus – looking forward to the day when he can raise an animal.
Zachary & Serenity’s lambs saying “Hi” through the fence.
I thought this lamb looked so cute. It had its eyes closed, resting, while it chewed its cud.
Today the lambs are showing. The kids show them twice, once for confirmation and the second time for showmanship. Fun, fun, fun! I’ll update tomorrow (hopefully) on how the kids placed.
