Gayland and I got to post colors both days, and one of the girls showing sang the National Antham and Amazing Grace. Her voice was incredible - one of those that gives you goosebumps.
Little Hootie showed Booger Red and won his class!
Katie won her class with Rooster and won Champion Senior Steer!
In the Youth Show on Sunday, Big Hootie took 1st with Red and Katie took 2nd.... then they got their tails whupped by a gorgeous steer that dwarfed ours!!
Then, of course, there's that handsome guy, the Bossman, that ran the staging area - the man I'm so blessed to share my life with -
And, we can't forget the Pit Crew - our daughter and granddaughter did lots of grunt work to make things happen!
They're standing here with my Mama's Boy. Mac was grouchy most all of the weekend.
We had packed stands Saturday and lots of visitors that loved on the longhorns. It was a great time!
I have to say a special note about the judge for the Youth Show- Judge John Baker. We have never seen a judge take the time he did to help all of our kids. He was amazing. He put his heart and soul into helping them become better showmen. We all wish to say thanks again to him for making a difference in the lives of young people.
In the work I do, I sometimes get very discouraged about today's youth, but these renew my faith in our future!
