B's First Pig Show....

Our county fair was the last week of June.
The week before, my uncle asked if B would like to show a pig in the "Runt Class."  It's for kids in grades Kindergarten through second who aren't old enough to be in 4-H.  At first she was pretty apprehensive about it, but then she started to get excited.
Almost time for her class.  All dressed up and ready to show.... 
Can't forget about this cutie.  She was there too!... 
The pig belonged to her cousin, Mary Kate.  These two have a similar personality;0)... 
Can you believe it was cool enough for Mel to be in a sweatshirt for most of the show?  The pig show was on Tuesday and by Friday highs were topping out near 105 degrees!! 
She had to brush all the sawdust off her pig... 



Waiting in the holding pen before her class... 


There she goes... 


Each participant got a ribbon and a dollar.  You would have thought she won a million dollars.  The judge picks an overall showman and they get a trophy.  B kept forgetting to keep her whip down, but for someone who has never walked a pig before, I think she did a pretty good job.  She wants to show a pig of her own next year, especially after she found out that you can teach them to do tricks!

  2. This is just about the cutest thing ever. She looks so grown up and so proud of herself. :) Can't wait to see her piggy tricks next year!
