Our parish livestock show is one week from today. This morning we had a workday at the barn.
Here is a great picture of 3 young men (friends of my boys).
Our show barn is used for other events throughout the year, so we must set up all animal pens.
We also held a chicken showmanship clinic for the poultry club members.
Tonight Landry decided to begin clipping her Ayrshire heifer, Lolly Pop.
Landry clipped her head, while I worked on her body. Dairy cows get a full body shave for shows. The Mohawk will turn into a trimmed “top line” to help create a very straight line down the back.
Tomorrow is Sunday, so church, then home to begin clipping pigs. We have 6 to shave for the show. I also have a friend stopping by with a lame calf roping horse.
Never a dull moment here!
