Well, it's the start of October, and I've not shown a calf since mid- August..it's time for a dang show! I wish I could find some that are halfway close to home, but there aren't any. I'm kinda jealous of you guys that live in Ohio, it seems like you guys have more shows than you know what to do with. I'm from eastern Illinois, so your western shows are close enough to be tempting, yet far enough away that it would be a big deal to go..On top of that, we can't go to the NAILE now, since we don't have the registration papers back on our calves yet..so now that earliest I can look forward to showing is late February..what a bummer! At least the calves look nice and I can complain about wanting to show..I know I'm lucky to have all that I do, but dang it, the show ring is callin'!!
