Yes that was a very nice show. You could tell what child worked with and got his or her animal ready for show and the fair. You could also tell what ones the parents did everything. It was very discouraging that a youth 4H member was deprived in the show ring. I have personally seen her leading her 4H beef project around the barn and outside. She really took a lot of time with him. When she entered the ring the other two beef wouldn't come out because they were jumpy. No they were wild and they were not worked with. They were to leave the ring and this little girl was to come in. It really deprived this young girl from showing the judge and everyone else watching how much she done with her steer. She couldn't lead him because of the wild steers. My personal feelings are they shouldn't never brought them if they were wild. The one had manure imbedded on his belly hair and other needed his feet trimmed. I also know that the father cared and took care of the beef animals. I never seen the kids until that day of show but here is that little girl caring for her animals and with her moms help getting them ready for show. Well my thoughts are that the little girl done an awesome job competing with a 50 year old man who has been in 4H himself and had many children in it. This uncalled for stuff deprives the other 4H members too. Way to Go Natale Redmond! You were the best in the ring and out.
