We had a great week at Simmental Junior Nationals in Des Moines!
Cy got to come to the barn a few of the days.
Peighton LOVED having him down there.
They spent a bit of their time cleaning.
Most of their time was spent having lots of fun and learning!
Peighton did an obstacle course one night which included running in a circle of fitting mats as well as building with buckets and running through feed pans!
Uno was the game of the week.
Peighton loved playing with her new friend Colbey!
We can't wait to find Colbey at the State Fair this year!
Preston was happy to dig holes.
Lots of holes.
They made GREAT friends with the kids in our aisle.
We sent them on a scavenger hunt one night.
They had to find at least 5 kids from 5 other states in teams of two.
Preston even went along with some of the boys!
The Uno game just got bigger and better as the week went on.
Peighton got a one on one showmanship lesson at the Sullivan's workshop one night.
Her teacher was a friend of Dustin's who did a GREAT job with her.
She also participated in 3 contests throughout the week but there's not any pictures of that.
She had to prepare a Sales Talk and present it, along with her heifer to a buyer.
She judged 6 classes of calves and gave oral reasons on one class.
She also did a cattleman's quiz.
She did a great job on each of the contests!
Finally it was show day!
Cy got to come to his first cattle show!
Peighton showed Anna like a boss.
I like this picture because Anna was looking right at me taking the picture!
Peighton got Anna to stand just right in the ring.
LOVE this picture of pure concentration that was taken of Peighton!
She had a great week and is looking forward to the State Fair!
