Wordless Wednesday: Pretty Cows & Pink Boots

By November 09, 2011 , , , ,

Showing cows is a passion of mine. I just can't seem to shake it. That's why when my family sold the cows and quit milking - I kept every single one of my 12 cows. Luckily, I found a fabulous home for them with an outstanding dairy woman and personal friend of mine in Ohio. Growing up, I attended a particular national show in Louisville, Ky. called the All-American Jersey Show. But it's been a couple years since I've shown in L-ville. You see, this is the BEST and biggest Jersey show in world - so you can't just take any ol' heifer down - it's got to be your best and the best!

Well this year, I had a pretty nice heifer - she was 5th at the Great Indiana State Fair, though I think she could've done a little better. So I loaded up sexy Stella - sent her down with a friend and packed up everything but the kitchen sink (traveling with a baby takes a lot of stuff!) and headed down with Baby RayRay and my mom for RayRay's second annual All-American.

Sexy Stella - did pretty well!. Her class was huge (30 head) so I keep telling everyone she is the 15th best senior calf in North America. But you want to know what was the MOST fun - seeing my little girl peeking over the rail watching mommy show. Despite what placing I was in my class - nothing warms your heart and puts things in perspective like a smile, giggle and point of the finger from that sweet little girl shouting, "Mommy" while you're in the show ring! And sorry, I wish I had more pictures - but 3 a.m. and 5 a.m. morning chores and late nights combined with chasing a 15-month old through the barns just about completely wore me out!
