With the uncertainty of the show season, how did you stay focused?
I stayed focused throughout the show season this year by continuing to work hard and having an optimistic attitude towards uncertainty of shows. Being prepared was a top priority of mine, so when the opportunity to show my lambs arose, I would be ready. I would also like to thank all of the people that made sure we had shows to go showcase our livestock at this year.
What was something new you tried this year since you were able to be home more often than normal?
I focused on having the same routine as any other year while spending as much time as possible on all the little things that end up going a long ways in the show ring.
What is your favorite show product to use?
My favorite show product to use this year would definitely be Sure Shine.
