yeah i usually come home sick too. we figured out the best plan. we are going to go down thursday night with everything in the back of the pick-up, so we can just shoot into the barn, and not have to wait in line with a trailer. then we will go back home, save a night of motel expense, and come down early in the morning.
our plan isn't working out too well so far. my mom, dad & brother went down & i stayed home to do chores. they left @ 2:30, and got into the fairgrounds @3:45. it's been 4 hours now and they are still sitting in line. the skidloaders and payloaders are still bedding the barn from the breeds. we are stalled where the chi's were at, and since their sale is so late, we have to wait even longer. but not this much.
anyway, threats were made that if any junior exhibitor was caught setting up in barn, even if your bedding was done, the exhibitor would be banned from showing.
what makes everything worse is that all of the streets in the fairgrounds are now one way due to the construction! my aunt said that it is a clustered mess, and that it is nearly impossible to get around. (oh great. :
something else to deal with.
we are leaving @ 3am to go back down with the calves. it's going to be a LONG day!!
