We are 2/3 completed with the spring stockshows.
Sydni and Regan both made the premium sale at the regional show.
For those who don't know about premium sales, here's the down-low....
The exhibitor's animals go through a sale pretty much like a normal auction.
The difference is, the animal is not really "sold".
The money is given as a donation and the "buyer" gets a tax-deduction and a really pretty picture w/ the exhibitor, the animal and themselves.
To show our appreciation to the "buyers", we give them a token gift for their generous support. Most "buyers" are businesses who hang the pictures in their office to show off their community support.
We have done special shirts to baked items to baskets to towels!
I found these floating frames and knew exactly what I could do with them!
Do you see that they have see through glass.....really adds a POW to the picture.
Sydni's steer was "bought" by Armstrong Bank for $600.00!
As with all the pics on this blog, you can click them to see them LARGER.
Regan's goat was "bought" by Munding Milling Feed for $650.00!
This was Sydni's last time to show at the regional show...sniff, sniff.
I can't believe she is only a few months away from graduating homeschool high school....sigh.....
I will post pictures of the local show when I get them in.....stay tuned!!!
