Robertson County Fair 2013

If you know me, you know that we live on a family dairy farm.  
My husband and I both work in the city but we still enjoy the farm living.  
Every year we get cows ready to go to the Robertson County Fair.  The nieces and nephews are getting old enough to really be great showmen.  So we took 13 heifers and cows to the fair and we did great.  Here's some pictures from our night at the fair.
 Our bunch at the fair

Old school Robertson County dairy showmen. 
Back in the day we all showed cows at the Robertson County the old barn where we had two nights of shows and stayed the night in between in the barn.  

We washed, we clipped, we showed, we laughed, we made life long friends, 
we had the best of times. 

And now there's a whole new generation on showmen showing at the Robertson County fair.  

There may only be one night of shows but we are in a new barn and we love every minute of showing, making new friends, and visiting with old ones.  

The cows are the stars of the show but these kids do a lot of work too

And the old folks (me included)
 And the great friends (including Cari who so kindly took pictures for me when I couldn't)
 Well we do some work too and it's all worth it. 

And if you are reading this thinking  - her new year's resolution of a tutorial every month - has went down the're right.  Life doesn't always give you the time to do EVERY thing that you want but you have to make time for the stuff that matters most.  I'll get back to soon as this crazy thing called life settles down.
