4H Kids Prepare Animals for Fair

A lot of time, hard work, and love goes into preparing for the fair!

 

by Beth Mossman - August 2, 2017

Summer time also means Fair time. Many of our area’s youth have been preparing throughout the year for the eventful week.

There is a lot to do, to prepare an animal for the show. Each animal, and sometimes breed, have different rules about how they must stand or perform in front of the judge. Exhibitors work with their animals for months teaching them what they want them to do.

The exhibitor must also “fit” the animal which may include washing, combing, and clipping hair. The animals need to be identified by using ear tags, leg bands or tattooing. They also need to be checked by a veterinarian to limit the spread of disease.

We encourage you to come on out to the fair and support the kids and the work they do. Please ask them questions about their animals. They love to share their knowledge.

The show schedule is:

Sunday, August 6.
9:00 am Open Horse Show
