Isabella County Fair 2016

This past week was the 2016 Isabella County Fair. The most fun and exhausting week in the year!  We started off the busy week by checking in all our crafts and projects in the 4-H still exhibit building.(e.g. quilting, baking, woodworking, painting, etc. etc. etc.)  Alexa showed our Black Lab, Rontu, in the dog show later on that day. Rontu and Alexa surprised us all by winning overall champion in showmanship and grand champion in obedience!  The day after, Sunday, I had to get my Indian Runner ducks and Congo, my Boer goat wether checked-in. (Just for fact: a wether is a castrated male goat, not what the sky looked like that day.)  Monday the 25th was poultry showmanship day!! I showed my female Indian Runner duck and took third place in the senior class. I get a lot of people who ask how in the world do you show a chicken?! Its really not too difficult and I would be more than happy to explain if you were ever so intrigued. And ducks are easier to show, harder to handle. Goat showmanship took place the next day, Tuesday. Congo surprised everyone (except me) by walking perfectly fine in the show ring. We got second place in the senior showmanship class and fourth in the meat wether class. Below are some pictures from the Fair.

Have a great week!
