Diary of a 4-H'er: Rain or shine, show must go on

Rain started off the fair Monday, and that kind of put a damper on the fact that it was the Boer goat and Myotonic goat show.

Still, the rain does make for cooler weather, and that makes all the goat people happy.

The goat barn was buzzing with the sound of clippers, a sign that the 4-H’ers were getting their goats prepared for the goat show that started at 5 p.m.

Alongside the goat barn, the rabbit and poultry shows were going on Monday, too. Later, the county spelling bee was set to take place in the grand stand, the first time for that location.

There were many activities going on around the fair Monday. I spent most all of my day in the goat barn, showing goats and watching my fellow 4-H’ers prepare and show their goats.

Kennedy McKeand, an 18-year-old Brownstown Central graduate and 4-H’er, is sharing her week at the fair with this daily diary feature.
