We went to Lake City this past weekend and I really enjoyed it. I thought it was a nice show (around 215 calves). We had the Reserve Simmi and Reserve Chimaine. Shortdawg, did you had those two white shorthorn heifers?

There was a pretty good crowd down there maybe 300 calves. It was our first trip to that show. There's not much barn space but, it was kind of fun to fit outside under the oak trees.

In Arcadia we were calling ourselves tent city. The people that i went with left the house at 4:30 am to get space in barns and get trailer space we left at 5:30 am and there was quit a few trailers allready there at 7:30am it was fun. We had all our friends together and everybody that was in our area got nothing below a 3rd. It was exciting, i was pleased with my shorthorn coming in behind the lightweight grand champion and he also ended up OVERALL reserve champion. My little black steer everybody loved, even tho he was going crazy everywhere.

EONF, Those two white heifers were ours. They are 1/2 sibs shown by my two boys. It was their first show together and the youngest's first show ever.

What was the turn out at Lake City? We had a big turn out at Arcadia was very surprised. I took 2nd and 4th with my two steers and 3rd with my heifer and my brother took 3rds with 2 of his steers and a 1st with his bull.

Congrats Shortdawg and Victoria on your showings. Keep up the great work.  Shortdawg, you did well with the Jazz heifers right? Can't wait to get those Snowflower/Jazz calves on the ground too.

Victoria, did Chris take out the Shorthorn bull?

Dooling1, Only the steer is a Jazz but they all done well.

Red, Their first show together was about as good as I could have hoped for. The biggest thing is they both presented their calves well and my youngest boy gained a load of confidence for the rest of the year. It's nice to do well but I pray for their safety above all else.

I've never been to the N. FL Fair. We usually have an invitational show in our county the same weekend.
