Brooke's favorite

on Wednesday, March 3, 2010

Now that Brooke knows that her steer, Beefy, will only work for her, he is her favorite. In fact, she won't even let anyone else touch him, let along walk him. We had to pull him in the barn last night to treat his sore foot and only SHE was going to walk him into the chute. He's come so far in the last couple months..... and so has she! He got 2nd in his class which meant that she was able to take him back in the ring for the Champion Maine Drive. Pretty exciting for just her 2nd year showing at Expo! We were very proud and she was too!

Wow what an accomplishment! Brooke looks so grown up! I don't know a darn thing about showing livestock but I think it's great skill to learn and seems like it teaches a lot of valuable things to be learned later in life.
