What was special or interesting about your lamb?
She has a birthmark covering her hip which makes her unique looking. She’s also challenging to get shown because she’s very friendly.
What was your favorite sheep in your barn this year?
This ewe lamb “Frog” and my Newsom wether “Buford” are my two favorites
How would you describe the moment you were selected as champion?
When I was selected as Reserve Grand Champion I was overwhelmed with so many emotions. I was excited to get a win, and the feeling of success with Frog after putting in countless hours of practice with her was really cool.
Favorite thing to hear on showday?
When my lamb and I do our part in the show ring, I love to hear that we did a good job from all the people who help me.
Favorite person you spent time with at the show…
The support I have from my family means the world to me, and I love spending time with them doing what we love.
Do you have any superstitions?
No. But I pray before and after I walk in the ring every time.
What is your dream job?
To work alongside my family with Mock Livestock and Mock Livestock Sales, continuing to watch the growth of the livestock show industry.
