Show Ring Bling????
« on: March 29, 2011, 10:31:09 AM »
I am helping a lady with her daughter's and son's first beef project!  The daughter is a senior so it will also be her last beef project but there are 2 more girls coming up behind her! They saw some really blinged out exhibitor number harnesses and show halters at a show, and have decided they want one.  I think I have talked them out of the halter but told them the number harness was ok...lol. 
Problem is none of us know where to get them? Is this something the people made on their own? Or is there someone who makes them? If anyone could let me know so I could tell them it would be greatly appreciated!

Sullivan supply sells them.... i think. but you can usually find them at the show where the supply trailers are.

Buy a plain one and make a trip to the craft store!  I know lots of girls that do that and make it their own creation... just don't get carried away.

I have to agree with the previous poster, DO NOT GO OVER BOARD. 

In my opinion I think there is way to much "bling" in the show ring right now..We have watched a few preview shows and the girls  have on more jewerly and/or the tightess jeans a young woman would or should wear out on a date. I am a believer the show ring is to show off the cattle not the showman..

I know!!  My 11 year old said she felt out of place showing in Sioux Falls in January as her jeans didn't have any "bling" and she didn't have any fancy jewerly on...

So at the expo she bought jeans with big blingy crosses on them to "fit it."  I am it was her money!!!!

Some girls I seen at our Expo looked like Disco Balls, and not to mention the make up. I believe a lil bling is ok, like my show halter is the weaver dark dazzel, its just the right amount of bling, I think the sullivan bling halters should be left for the younger girls until age 14. With the show harness the best bet is to use a plain one and "bedazzel it ;D they can personlize it to the stones or studs they want

(lol)

This is an interesting topic, and I think it could be even more interesting if everyone who responds to this post declare their gender, are you  male or female.  ???

I for one would like to know who is for, and who is against, all the BLING!  (pop)   

Male or Female Exhibitor, or is it Dad or Mom?  (argue)

I am a mom of an 11 year old girl..

I believe a little bling is okay, but not so much that it gets in the way of showing the calf.  My daughter says she doesn't win in showmanship because she doesn't wear enough bling either, because of mom, and her jeans are not tight enough, because of mom and dad!!!!!

I'm a dad of a 9 yo old girl and I'm old school.  I hunt with a recurve bow and I am a blacksmith that can build just about anything out of metal with a coal forge and an anvil, but I got out voted on the bling thing with my wife and daughter.  I personaly don't care for all the bling on halters and belts but we did allow our daughter to have a little on her halter, that we did ourselves.  Now the belt is a different story,  I think the belt is way overboard but both grandmas got it for her and rather than start a fight that I can't win I look the other way.  There are other battles I can win.
