Did you know that cows can get ulcers?
I didn't either...until one of our cows had one.
You may remember how sick Angel was on our trip to Oklahoma for Junior Nationals. It wasn't until we arrived home and our vet examined her that we learned she had a bleeding ulcer.
For every minute in the show ring, there are hours and hours spent back in the barn.
Two fairs...lots and lots of barn time.
I think every show box is equipped with at least one deck of cards.
'We ended the summer show season with a few days at the Ohio State Fair.
If it feels like you have read this post before...I kind of feel like I have written this before. As the years go on, we do the same things over and over. It should make things easier...right?
Well, I don't know if our July's will ever be easy, but maybe we just don't have to think as hard and can rely on the auto pilot a little more.
Heading into the Ohio State Fair, I just didn't feel very prepared. Planning for the show was pretty last minute, because the time just wasn't there. Over the years, we have kept detailed notes, so it really is easier...but it felt a little bit too easy...so I was sure I was forgetting something.
Well thankfully, I didn't forget anything... at least that I know of.
Coming off of the county fair, we always have to will ourselves to the state fair. We are usually just too tired to really care.
Once we arrived, it didn't take us long to get into the spirit of things.
Hello! I am Heather... the city girl turned mom to manure loving country boys. My husband and I both grew up in the city, but spent weekends visiting grandparents in the country. We are first generation farmers who learn best by almost always doing things the hard way. I hope you enjoy following along with our adventures down on the farm.
