Well if its what everyone likes to still it's drink mix to go in the calves water they like to still it and mix themself a drink. And they like to still adhesive . But at Houston we learned a new trick, take adhesive and hay and glue it in the walk way because on the weekend all the city people walk throw the barn and it funny to see them get hay stuck to there feet. Sounds mean but it's not that bad. But you have to take a radio and some good CD"s that's what make a show. Have fun (clapping) (clapping) (clapping)
DA....you must be one of those kids that ties the $5 bill to fishing line and waits for someone to pick it up. One of our 4H kids got the surprize of his life when the little old lady tried to pick up twice, then got ahold of it and ripped it off the line and put it in her pocket. I haven't laughed until I cried since! (clapping)
There are several things that aren't directly for the cattle that make life alot easier for me. I always carry a good pair of pliers, a couple of screwdrivers (flat and phillips), a 9/16" combination wrench (fit's our fans mounting bolts) and a ratchet with 9/16" and 5/8" (fit's our fan cage) sockets. A roll of electrical tape always comes in handy, too. I like to keep an old hand towel or two in addition to a roll of paper towels and a small bottle of hand sanitizer. You can use electrical tape and a piece of paper towel, but a few bandaids come in handy, too. These items don't take up much space, but they're sure nice to have when you need 'em.
Baby wipes work great in the lamb and goat showbox. When its to cold to wash or the weather will not let you baby wipes work great to clean them up. I like to keep z-ties in the show box. For hanging signs or tieing follow ffa buddy to there chairs when there asleep. The money trick is old but the younger kids like to do that one. But there is a guy who I show with when he was showing open show him and the man who he was working for showing got a $5 or $10 dollar bill and put poop in the middle of it they really did have people come by and pick it up,and put it in there pocket so see my trick wasn't that bad I'm not that mean. I was the look out for the adhesive thrick but it was a group of about 10 of us who didn't have nothing to do but hang out at the stall and laugh till we all were crying. An the best part is laughing at Matt the guy who thought it was so funny he fell out of his chair in to a bucket of water but he was a good sport about it and just laught that much harder.
Hush MKL32! you're supposed to let them think I am a perfect creature who never forgets the keys to locks!
Goodies are always on the top of my list. I have actually gotten calls a week ahead from other families asking me what I'm bringing! Bad rep!!!
Genes, a little bit of vasiline on the face right before fitting will keep the glue and paint from sticking. And a surgical mask will keep you from getting a sore throat and that black stuff that comes out of your nose 3 days.
