A week at the county fair

August 5, 2015

Dog-Show 1053

This was our first year participating in 4-H and taking in all the activities at the Big Horn County Fair. The over-week-long event started with the dog show. Addie showed her Pom Leighla. The show began a little rocky… but by the last class they had earned several ribbons including a first place ribbon for the Rally course!


Monday was the halter horse show. She brought her pony, Old Mc Chub Chubs and her barrel horse, Jet.


Chub Chubs helped keep her entertained and smiling between classes.


And he looked pretty smart too!


That’s right! The coveted purple ribbon! Grand Champion Miniature Horse at the Big Horn County Fair! (Chubs looks pretty excited doesn’t he?)


The riding classes with Jet went really great too! She won a ribbon in every class and we even ended up adding a reining class to her schedule!

This is a very happy girl!

Goat-Show 1129

Aiden took a market goat to the fair. Her name is Sally. They went through the show and received third place in their market class. After the class Aiden came out. His eyes started tearing up. I mommed out!

“Aiden, it’s OK third place is really good! Aiden, what is wrong?”

“Nothing mom, I- I just need a moment. These are happy tears! These are tears of joy!”

Yes, that moment, that moment right there! That made all the work and preparation and hours and dollars worth it. In that one sentence. Totally worth it!


Thank you Linton’s Big R for buying Aiden’s market goat!


And now we are back at home. And it feels great. And I am way behind on things! (Nothing new there!)

Thank you for joining us here at the barnyard!
