Fair Prep Begins

The quiet time around here doesn't last very long.  Libby is already starting to work with her 4-H steer in preparation for the fair in August.  She uses alfalfa pellets to lure him in then waits for him to be distracted with the sweet treat before she begins to calmly pet him and progresses from there.  It is a process and not one for those with little patience as it is often two steps forwards and one step back.  Libby is making a big leap this year by decided to auction off a steer in the Clallam County Jr Livestock Auction on August 19th.  I hear rumor that hers will be the first 100% grass fed steer to be auctioned which is pretty awesome, though admittedly I'm a little biased. :)
