Scarlett & Gray, Ohio

This past Friday, we packed, we washed, we clipped and we loaded. Then we drove almost 3 hours to Ohio to a cattle show. There was 3 adults and 3 children in 1 truck with a trailer. And 2 heifers and lots of tack.
This is Garrett with Lily doing his profile while the judge gave his reasons why he chose her to win the class

Here is Garrett and Lily just before they were chosen for Champion Purebred Simmental Heifer.

And here they are at the drive. She was bein such an angel that day. And Garrett was on his game.

Our boy waitin to go into the ring. He usually has a chat with her and talks softly in her ear. She just loves him. Almost like an overgrown dog.

Did I mention that at this particular show it was 26 degrees outside. And that we were stalled under and ovaduct with trains going over the top of us. Oh, and the only heat we had was a salamandor and a tent. Needless to say we were bundled up like little eskimos. But I am happy to say that so far noone is sick and we had a great weekend.
Ring A: 1st place Purebred Simmental Heifer, Champion Purebred Simmental Heifer.
Ring B: 1st place Purebred Simmental Heifer,
Reserve Champion Purebred Simmental Heifer.
They received some cash and an embroidered blanket. But the best was the cheesey smile on our boys face when he walked out of the show ring.
