WW: Hoosier Beef Congress With Us

So excited, headed up to Indy to set up stalls and we are not all 5 riding in a single cab pick-up truck!

Setting up fan cage and arranging bedding - yes they have to do the work!


Team Fitting Contest - they placed 3rd overall - not to shabby since it was their first fitting contest ever!

Pep talk - all my kids have always talked or sang to the calf in the ring!

Headed into Showmanship - for the first 5 years they show I make them do showmanship after that it is their decision - my middle will do showmanship forever, my oldest not so much - once she completed her 5 years she was done, she will work all day in the barn but hates the ring!

In the make-up ring!

LOVE THIS - I just happened to look up and he was telling her she did a great job and kissed her forehead!

Waiting for the youngest 2 to go in the ring - we had been up since 3am washing calves and grooming - I couldn't wait to go back to bed!

In the make-up ring!

Pep talk from Dad!
