We learned that the arena is much bigger than we imagined - much bigger! It even had a big screen TV....not that we noticed once we were in the ring.
We learned that you can hurt someone with the show stick (should have practiced lots more walking with it). You can poke someone's eye out with those things. Yanni did well despite my poor handling.
We learned that we won first place in the Late Heifer class and Young Heifer Reserve Champion!
And again, most importantly, we learned that we were surrounded by awesome Dexters and Dexter breeders who share of their time, expertise and hay (thanks to you all!). Our sincerest thanks to all our Dexter friends who helped us before, during and after the Fair. It was the perfect learning experience and we can't wait to do it again - regardless of the outcome.
