Our family's homesteading adventures in the mountains

Lisa and Brownie at Jefferson County Fair


Lisa worked hard again in 4-H this year training her dog, Brownie. We have seen many improvements in her over the year most notably her ability to stay calm around other people and dogs.  She was the only dog in the competition that did the stay command (successfully!) off leash.  Lisa and Brownie took first in both Obedience and Showmanship and were invited to attend the state fair in Pueblo again.  This year we declined as it is a huge commitment in both time and money.  Perhaps she will get to go again next year!

Jefferson County Fair Livestock Show

Katy once again participated in 4-H and showed two of her goats at the county fair.  She spent so much time training them and caring for them.  Both Molly and Smores looked great and the care that Katy gave them really showed at competition time.  She won Grand Champion in Intermediate Showmanship, Grand Champion in Breeding as well as in the dairy goat class.  She brought home a slew of ribbons as well as three gorgeous new belt buckles.  Katy also got the chance to participate in Round Robin.  Round Robin is where the showmanship winners compete against each showing in all categories – horse, goat, llama, sheep, poultry, rabbit and swine.
