I got there in time to watch and she did not know I was watching. She got a Blue Ribbon with her Angus Fair Steer that was all fattened up. That is the last one of the group for her to show at the Fair this year. Now she just keeps them clean for others to see till 5:00 PM Sunday and home they come. The fair steer gets bid on tomorrow in the auction. That way the kids have a way of getting there money back from all the work they did raising them. Mark H.

Hi Mark, Glad to hear Shelby is winning those ribbons. It really makes a parent proud when your child is successful in these competitions. GOOD LUCK. Cheers, Murray

She started buying her first calves at 12 by selling home grown veggies at the Satuday Market. Now she has 15 of them at 17 years of age by selling Steers and re/investing back into them. This also pays for the feed and Vet bills too. I pick up the tab on the buildings and fences she covers the rest of the costs. The Scottish Highlands are her Registerd ones. The Grand Champions will help in selling them later. She realy knows alot about them and reads everything she can get her hands on including ton's of Vet Books. I was lucky to get 4th place with a Pony at her age!! I do not mind the investment in the place building the barns and fences it has paid off and what else do we live for but to guide and help our kids get a good start if they are willing to work for it at the same time. It sure isn't about having the most gold at the end when you go. Mark H.
