We caught up with Ms. Hannah Whetstone, exhibitor of the Reserve Grand Champion Commercial Ewe at the 2022 Kansas Junior Livestock Show. Learn a little more about Hannah below!
School Attending & Grade: Freshman at Kansas State University
What was special or interesting about your lamb?
Megan The Stallion is such a fun sheep to show. She knows what swagger is and her natural color is the cherry on top. Only downside? She hates the wash rack.
What was your favorite sheep in your barn this year?
Megan was definitely my favorite sheep this year and probably competes for my favorite of all time.
How would you describe the moment you were selected as champion?
Kansas is no slacker when it comes to the females. I knew there were some special ones in the drive so it was pretty awesome to come out as Reserve. I felt so grateful for a cool female and an amazing team.
Favorite thing to hear on showday?
Some “good luck”s and some “go get ’em”s are my favorite.
Favorite person you spent time with at the show…
I love seeing all of my friends and hanging with my girls Rachel, Erin, and Bailey!
Do you have any superstitions?
Fist bumps always do the trick 🙂
What is your dream job?
My plan is to work in broadcast journalism, so I think being a news anchor or an NFL sideline reporter would be pretty cool.
