Posted by: Kim_Hamilton on 05/10/2010 08:39 AM

Frogtown, CA.....With the fairgrounds preparing for the onslaught of people and animals next week the tractors were rolling, the construction crews were banging, and the sawdust was flying, all adding to the anticipation and the stress of showing an animal. But I tell you, these kids were up to the challenge. The first entrant was Lindsey Michaels of Copper Hills 4-H showing Chico, a five year old male alpaca. This was Lindsay’s 3rd year showing, which put her in the advanced category. Linsdey placed first in showmanship. Next up was Levi Rollings, also of Copper Hills 4-H, showing Dufus, a five year old male. This was Levi’s first year in 4-H. He placed first in showmanship for novice.....
