    I'm not a 4Her or a FFA member but I sure do LOVE the fairs. I can't wait to do The Puyallup Fair this year. Are you going Beth?

    Our County fair was in July but the State fair that my 4Her show is Sept 5th.

    As for County Fair My daughter won the Champion Showman in her division then she won Grand Champion Senior Showman in the Round Robin. I also had my Intermediate Fiber goat girl win Grand Champion Intermediate Round Robin showman. The goat kids cleaned up. Beat those cattle and hog kids. I was very proud of them as a leader.

    What are you guys/gals showing at your fair? I showed pigs in 4-H and goats for a few years when I was a kid. It was always nice to have the extra money from selling my pig to buy clothes and supplies for school. And of course I had to pay my feed bill for my pigs.

    While I'm not a 4-H er, my kids used to be. Just finished doing the petting zoo at the Hunterdon County Fair - lots of beautiful nigerians there again. Stacey, did you go this year?? If so, why didn't you come see me???

    I have my last County Fair this may :( . Since im 18, but im taking like all my goats so I an show them, luckily there are other shows besides this one. This is the only fair I have ever been to, and before I got into 4H and Nigerians, I showed market sheep for 2 years and a pig one year. Now im in looooove with my Nigis!

    I know in Michigan, they did something funky with the 4H "ages". My niece was 19 and still showing because of the way her birthdate fell. I sometimes get confused when they ask for 4H age and/or real age. :shrug:

    Our fair used to go by age but now it goes by grade. To show animals its 3rd grade to the summer after 12th grade then you are done.
