All tagged Raised in a barn
I grew up showing livestock. From the age 8 to 18, you could find me working late nights and early mornings in the barn, and on the road on weekends traveling to various livestock shows. My community watched me grow up showing livestock. "I remember when you were 8 years old, I watched you show pigs at the Delaware County Fairgrounds."
These kids are well-rounded. Many of the members are in multiple clubs and organizations. I have seen kids go straight from a basketball game to a livestock show.
As a stock show kid you make an animal's life the best it can be. You provide and care for them and it teaches you just how valuable life really is.
