Snodgrass Family First Ever 4-H Fair Experience

Pawnee County 4-H Fair


This July we were fortunate enough to have our Snodgrass Family 4-H experience! We headed home on Wednesday morning from our vacation in Colorado so we could be at the fairgrounds at 8:00 a.m. on Thursday. Let’s just say that we were pretty sleepy that morning and didn’t want to wake up! We did make it to the fairgrounds by 8:00 and we had to give Kaylyn’s goat a bath. I don’t know if you have ever given a goat a bath, but it’s safe to say that it really isn’t that much fun!

Since this was our first year, we didn’t really know what to expect, but Kaylyn did an amazing job with her goat. She acted like she has been doing this forever. We were so proud of her! One of the rules is that you have to keep the goat between you and the judge at all times. It’s kind of funny, because you can tell that the judge likes to try to trick the kids up. You can tell which kids are really paying attention to the judges every move. Kaylyn was one of the kids that really watched the judge and it was so cute to see her moving around her goat.  It’s fun to see how all of the hard work of taking care of the goat finally paid off when we saw Kaylyn’s smiling face.

Additionally, because this was her first year she received a very special award. A local family donates the feed tub to first year kids in honor of a family member they lost. We are so fortunate to live in an amazing community and have so many great people here. This family is a perfect example of why we love our town!

In closing, I will say that if you have a 4-H program available for your kids that you should really consider signing up. It is a lot of work, but in the end it is totally worth it. The kids learn a lot, but the parents do to.
