Past FFA & 4-H Livestock Shows
This young lady has gotten her animal ready for judging. She has washed, dried, brushed, combed, and soothed her animal to present her to the judges. She is now in the arena in the Senior Showmanship category
Keeping the animal content during the competition requires constant attention to detail, while making sure the animal stays under control, especially while the judge is watching.
These young ladies were all awarded ribbons for their efforts. The Blue Ribbon went to Miss Elizabeth Holmes, on the far right in this picture.
When they get along with each other, showmanship is a lot easier. Look closely at this picture and you will see a caring child and a calm heifer. It pays off in the long run.
