We had all three calves place in their classes. And one heifer went on to win her division.

This bull was reserve in his class..

My thoughts only, don't bet the farm on them. KT

Some people know people, who know people, who aren't very nice people and you could get a visit from them someday. So be good people.

Congrats! As others have said, placing at the Royal is a pretty big deal. Where are you showing them next?

Have you ever been? Showing there is an amazing and horrifying experience! It is fun and not something everyone will do in their lifetime, but it is also a long week, cold, wet, and is tons of walking. Advice if you do go-good walking shoes/boots (you will be walking in cow patties anyway, so don't stress the style), get a good hotel (close is awesome, but the main thing is a good bed with a decent breakfast), plan to procure food somewhere other than the vendors on site (think $10 for pop)....
And just enjoy the experience and have fun! Seriously, taking ones stock onto the tanbark at NWSS is one of the most awesome experiences!
