Proud Grandma

 

 

 

 

235iCE05C3E9FE2A4E11Granddaughter Madison, age 7, and her gilt 'Pigalicious', won Reserve Champion in the Open Show at our county fair this morning!  I guess I am going to have to eat my words a bit about "not getting it" as I was very excited to watch all the kids and adults who competed.  It was wonderful to see Maddie do so well.  I have attached a photo.   (a bit blurry,,she never stopped moving,,,lolol)

Re: Proud Grandma

Glad she is learning young.  Hopefully she has learned care and feeding of the animal as well.  To me, that is what is is all about..to be proud of what YOU did yourself.

Re: Proud Grandma

You should be proud. I love hearing stories about young children doing something positive and the family sharing the rewards with them. I love the pig name also. I loved it when we raised pigs, I love them. Be proud!!!!!!

Re: Proud Grandma

Congrats! Those pigs never really stop moving unless eating, so it's wonderful to get a picture of your DGD showing.

I don't know Thing One about livestock showing, but they look like they are doing great to me!

Her daddy breeds and raises club hogs so she spends a lot of time in the barn with him.  She just loves pigs and loves to show them.  She is expected to do her barn work and be a part of things way before she is allowed to step into the show rings.  My DD and SIL are really good about that.
