4-H

Anybody else a 4-her? I just joined last month. I'm gonna show market lambs, (hopefully!)

Just curious.... :)

I was a deprived child... I went to a few 4H fairs when I was a kid... all I remember was looking at animals and playing on some rides... that was a few years ago...
I had no idea what it was all about back then. Maybe, just maybe I'll let my kids get involved in it when they're a bit older...

I think that would be a great idea, Millipede! :) 4-H is a great way to be involved with your community. The club I'm in does a lot of community services I'm hoping to help out with.

I'm in 4-H! I absolutely love it! I show rabbits, chickens, pigeons, goats, and my dogs. Millipede, your kids could show ducks! I do non-livestock stuff too. And our county has retreats, fun stuff, community service, etc. I like 4-H a lot if you can't tell!

well my oldest is only 5, and even if there are things for her to do at that age, I think I'll wait a few years before I jump into anything like that... When she's older we'll just see what kind of things she's interested in.

Heather, that is so cool! Sounds like you're really busy! I can hardly wait 'till May, that's when my show will be. And I'm already getting excited about next summer's county fairs! I LOVE county fairs.... ;D

Your show is in May?! Our county fair is in August, and that's when my shows are!

Well, we have a market animal show that's held in May. It's just that... market steers, hogs, and lambs. Hopefully I'll be showing a lamb there. Then in August we have our county fair.


Hey, Heather, just curious... do you have to wear the 4-H uniform when you show?

4-H uniform? No, I've never even heard of it. We have to wear (for most species) a white shirt...and black or blue pants.

I've heard that in California they have to wear white pants, a white shirt, green tie and a dorky-looking little white hat. I've seen pics of kids showing lambs with the uniforms on. Thankfully we don't have to wear that in Virginia! It's required at my show to wear nice jeans, a button-down or polo shirt, and boots.
