Alley Oop had her day at the county fair last week. She did very well when it came to judging, she captured a couple of first place ribbons. Her lamb was in the running for Grand Champion, but just didn't make the grade. She lost out on it due to politics really. Her heart was broken and tears fell. My advise to her was that she should raise a goat or a chicken next year or change her last name to ...........! The same man has judged the lambs for the past three years and the same two girls (sisters) have walked away with Grand Champion. Not to hard to do the math on that one. In any case the sale of her lamb brought her $500. That kind of eased her hurting heart and she will do it all again next year and of course be crushed again. Are we seeing a pattern here or what???
I will give you an up date on how Britt is doing in the next day or two. Until then, I am wishing all a weekend filled with many blessings, much love and more happiness than you know what to do with.
