Callie and Kylee, all ready to go for the day! They entertained us all the way to Springfield and back with games and giggles. These two young ladies have incredible work ethics and we are so fortunate that they are allowed to travel and show with us.
It's Show Time! Kylee with DancinQueen and Calli with Gypsy Dance. The giggles are gone and the show seriousness is on --
Waiting to enter the show ring with Wild Child, my favorite girl. Neither of us thinks that waiting is much fun, and I'm wilting in the heat and the Missouri humidity!
That kind of focus on the judge might just get you a ribbon or two. That's Calli in the Junior Showmanship competition.......
The result of all that focus.... Junior Showmanship winner!
Kylee is the recipient of the 2013 Chris Odom Memorial Award for Junior Exhibitor of the Year. She worked very hard on her application, testing and is a tireless young promoter of the Dexter breed.
How lucky can we get? We are so honored to have them along with us for the trip. The smiles and pride exhibited by those two girls make it all worthwhile! Congratulations!
And all too soon, it was time to take DancinQueen to the sale ring. We were really sad to see her go, but she went to the most fantastic home we could ever imagine (thanks, Louise!) and we know that she's going to be cared for and well appreciated.
We may have purchased one or two ourselves - more on that later......... The genetic diversity is one of the reasons that we love to attend the sale at the AGM. Genetics from all over the country centralized in one place. Dexters truly do have something for everyone.
