Ft. Worth Stock Show

It's that time of year again - the Ft. Worth Stock Show...

Bailey showed an Black Angus Heifer this year and did a great job. She placed 4th in her Class, which is quite an accomplishment when you walk through the barns and realize just how many hundreds of youngsters and cows are involved in this show. It's really very amazing that these kids devote so much time and effort to these bovine!

Here's a picture of the prize heifer.
This one doesn't have a name, we simply refer to her as 59U, but in a very affectionate way. Most of the time I hear Bailey calling her 'stupid' for stepping on her feet! LOL

I can assure you that the hair on this cow is softer than yours or mine! Bailey bathes, shampoos, and conditions this beast EVERY DAY!
Here is Bailey escorting 59U into the Show Ring. She looks like a pro at walking a cow...I wonder how fast her heart was beating?

Here's a cute picture of Bailey with her cousin, Gavin holding the ribbon for 4th place!
Bailey and Gavin are tight!!

This was a great learning experience for all of us and we did have a great time!

Stay tuned for more pictures of Bailey and the Calf Scramble - more fun in Rodeo arena! :)
