I found all the prompts for this week’s Scavenger Hunt at the State Fair or at home. I hope you enjoy more pictures from my Nebraska trip!
These pictures of Southdown sheep are candid. The left picture is of the Reserve Champion Southdown Ewe. The Judge was blunt when praising this ewe for her ideal breed character. The middle picture honestly shows how comfortable and happy a sheep can be while at the Fair. The right picture is of Sister showing the ram. Showing livestock is putting yourself out in the open ring to be evaluated by the judge, fellow breeders and the crowd.
Riley is not a dog that needs toys. He prefers love, hugs and belly rubs. Riley also enjoys the occasional table scrap and 4-wheeler ride.
All 5 Senses are working while at the State Fair. This Dorset ram’s horns are curling around his ears and in front of his eyes. The piglet has a little nose to smell with. Molly loves the taste of a bone she found. These two High School girls stopped to touch and feel the soft lambs.
No batteries are needed when trimming sheep. A good pair of shears works just fine. Mom learned a few pointers from a sheep showing pro.
Mom’s guard animal “Daisy” is half llama, half alpaca.
Living a candid life requires us to use our senses. We can’t have our eyes or minds half-open. We must keep our batteries charged so we can see and experience life. Our lives are full of guidelines and rules, but sometimes we need to sit down and enjoy the simple things; to hug our family, rub the dog’s belly and play with toys.
