Our Week at Fair

Picture of Jace - Fitting and Showing his cavy.We had a great week at fair - it made me realize even more, how much we will miss all of the friends that we have made through our kids 4H club! The kids and their animals all did really well. We did have a fun surprise when one of Marissa's rabbits had 6 babies during the middle of fair! We did not know that when she had gotten out of her cage at the same time as one of Jace's boy bunnies.

Marissa won Reserve Grand Champion in both her rabbit and cavy fitting and showing.

That qualified her to participate in the small animal round robbing where she had to fit and show (show handling and knowledge of an animal) on a rabbit, cavy (guinea pig), chicken and pigeon. She did a great job and won Grand Champion!

The kids all had the opportunity to sell their market rabbits. We had lots of bidders there this year and everyone got a really good price on their market animals.

We are not sure if we will be able to participate in fair next year - but we sure hope so!
