These photos represent lots of family memories for us. Each year our family heads to the Idaho Junior Beef Expo show in Filer, Idaho. My husband, his brothers and sister, used to show there, and now our kids have the opportunity to compete and enjoy the youth activities they have planned each year. It’s a great show with a family-friendly atmosphere. The kids love to show, but they also have just as much fun hanging out with friends too.
This was the first year our son had a chance to show in the pre-Peewee Division of the Hereford show. He was so excited to show his sister’s Hereford heifer, Lizzy. I think my favorite pic is the one just above. He’s still trying to figure out how to manuever the show stick, which is used to help set up the animal’s feet and scratch their belly to keep them calm. This is also our middle daughter’s first year to show a Hereford and we are very proud of her. She’s a little more timid, but excited to learn and improve.
Loved capturing this moment of my girls!
Champion Junior Angus Showman!
That grin says it all. She was pretty darn excited to show her big sister’s Angus heifer and win the Peewee Angus Showmanship division.
So many fun memories hanging out with friends and cattle!
