Simmental Field Day 2017

We had a great weekend in Ames for Simmental Field Day!

Peighton and Gus brought home 4th Overall Market Animal!
She was pretty excited to hang something new on her wall!

Her cheering section.

Peighton and her assistant before they went in the ring.

She did a great job showing all three of her calves.
The kids had fun seeing friends all weekend too!

When we got back she was off to 4-H camp!
We can't wait to pick her up this afternoon and hear all about it!!!!!

Showing pigs, babies in the barn, T-Ball and more pig shows!

May brought a month of more showing, babies in the barn, dance recitals, T-Ball, school presentations and more showing!

These four happened to all be sitting nicely together!
Time for a picture!

Peighton's first baby from Princess Anna had to have a splint put on her leg.
Peighton has enjoyed that it slowed her down enough to be loved on!!!!

Miss Diamond is SO LOVED.

They have a lot of chats.

Cutest baby ever.

Her dance recital was awesome as always!

Flowers from her fans.

Photo bomber and one of her biggest fans.

Lots of nights spent at the ball park!

Number 44 is my fave!

Peighton had a "State's Fair" at school.

She highlighted agriculture in her state of North Carolina.

She graduated from elementary school that day as well!

Then we were off to more shows!
Peighton won showmanship in Oskaloosa.

Preston was second in his age group for showmanship!

He and Wilbur brought home the Reserve Yorkshire!

And then it was the last day of Kindergarten!

She finished up fourth grade and is onto the Middle School this fall!

April was full of Cattle and Pigs and some Silly String!

Spring flew right by us!

It was full of Jackpot shows for both calves and pigs and some Easter fun too!

Anastasia and Gus made a trip down to Donnellson for a show.

Peighton had fun and made some new friends!

Alley and Gus went to the Washington Jackpot show.
It was a beautiful to show some calves!

These two clean up pretty nice when they have to!

They had fun hunting eggs after church.

Getting instructions from Grandma Sue for the next hunt!

They all LOVE silly string.

They called Grandpa out and hit him pretty hard!

Then we were off to another pig show!

It has been a super fun spring watching these two in the ring!
