goats, pigs, and rodeo time, oh my!

Well, we endured our first stockshow, as parents!!! Boy how things have changed! What ever happened to just buying an animal feeding it for a few months and then fitting it for show time? Who knew that owning three little animals could be so complex and well, so involved? We really learned a lot this year and are already planning for next year's show! Riley really did a super job showing his animals. He placed 4th with one of his goats (out of a class of 20, I might add!) and made the sale! The other animals went without placing, but that didn't seem to phase him at all. Jaret wasn't really sure why he couldn't show "his" goat this year?! I think that this will be an issue that we will battle a little more each year. We have two more days of the rodeo and Riley is riding his new horse, Splash, in the grand entry.
