We just got back from an exciting road trip to the National Pinzgauer Show at the Missouri State Fair in Sedalia. It was a long 2 days driving each way, with 6 head of cattle and all the accessories in the trailer. The show was a busy few days, with the Junior show on Friday August 16th and the Open show on Saturday August 17th. All four kids showed in the Junior show, Winnie and Alex showed their heifers, and all the kids showed in the showmanship class, even Gus! We were proud of them and their efforts and hard work. On Saturday everyone except Gus was showing in various categories. Our cow/calf pair got a 2nd place, and Winnie's heifer Annabelle got a first in her class. The kids all got ribbons for showmanship as well. It was a great learning experience, and we hope to be able to go again next year!
