About a month before the State Fair, Preston decided he wanted to show one of our bulls.
He had been given a sawed off show stick over the summer and was itching to put it to use.
Luckily we have a very tame and well behaved bull this year.
Peighton was going to show him but she agreed to let Preston give it a try.
He practiced with "Mr. Nelson" at home and was sure he could do it.
He told EVERYBODY he talked to about showing this guy on Friday.
He agreed to have "his assistant" Grandpa Dale, in the ring with him but he did just about everything on his own.
He did have to wear his sister's rhinestone harness which he was NOT happy about.
Probably time to get him his own.
He did such a good job.
I love this picture.
Dragging his bull around the ring with such confidence and drive.
Took his ribbon like a pro from his friend, Maddie, the beef princess.
His favorite part was that he beat Dustin in the ring.
The next day it was time for Peighton to show Princess Anna.
A few last minute words of encouragement from some of her biggest fans.
Maybe next year I'll be able to see her over the top!
Peighton did a great job showing Anna.
The judge gave her some nice compliments over the microphone about her showmanship skills.
She gets better each time she's in the ring.
She stood second in her class and went back in for the division champion.
Peighton had a great time and got to see some of her livestock friends.
She can't wait to do it again.
We're catching up on all the fair laundry and getting ready for school to start in a few days!
