We caught up with Mr. Hayes Henderson, exhibitor of the Grand Champion Market Lamb at the 2022 Mississippi State Fair. Learn a little more about Hayes below!
School Attending & Grade: I am in the 5th grade at Winona Christian School.
What was special or interesting about your lamb?
He came from Logan MacLennan via Chad Walker and we also have his full brother in the barn. They have a bond and hate to be separated from each other.
What was your favorite sheep in your barn this year?
It would be hard for me to pick just one but the MacLennan brothers, Beavis and Butthead are special
How would you describe the moment you were selected as champion?
Nothing beats that handshake in the grand drive.
Favorite thing to hear on showday?
A fist bump from my dad before I go in the ring always fires me up!
Favorite person you spent time with at the show…
I enjoy spending time with my mom, dad and all my show friends throughout the state at shows. It was really awesome that Ms. Joelle Jackson and Morgan Jackson came over from Texas to watch me at State Fair this year.
Do you have any superstitions?
Not a one, work hard keep grinding and good things will happen.
What is your dream job?
I want to work with my dad, raise show sheep and judge big time livestock shows.
