The Yellowhead 4-H Club held their Achievement Day at the fairgrounds in Barriere on Sunday, August 18.
Everybody did such a great job showing off their projects.
A big thank-you to all the parents who helped organize the amazing taco lunch.
Our sheep achievement was a great learning experience for the showmen and their sheep.
We started the day off by getting our lambs show ready by washing and trimming.
Once the day started we were split into two groups, a senior group, and a junior group. Each group took their turn doing a class of showmanship.
A big “thank you” to our sheep leader, Mrs.Knoll, and one of our senior members, Cheyenne Veninga, for judging the classes.
Thanks to Cheyenne for organizing the sheep achievement day.
The photography kids started their day off by judging a class of four honey bee pictures. After that they chose three of their best photos to show to the judge, Mr. Hamblin. Once they were done with there best photos they went through their record books to make sure they were all caught up.
Thanks to Mr. Hamblin who organized the achievement day for the photography members.
Our Horse achievement day was a good learning opportunity to enter the arena with horses in front of a judge.
First we did a showmanship class were we led our horse on the halter through a pattern. Next we had our equitation class were we rode a small pattern for the judge. The final time we entered individually for our level testing. Thank you to our judge Leaha Woods who gave us good feedback that we can use to improve our riding and showing skills. Also a big thank you to our leader Mrs. Smith who organized the day.
Rabbit and Cavy:
At achievement day the rabbit and cavy kids practiced showing their animals in showmanship and in the class that their project will be in at fairs. Some of the older members also helped the first year members by teaching them how to show. A big thank you to the rabbit and cavy leader, Ginger, who organized the achievement day for the rabbit and cavy kids.
At goat achievement day they showed their goats in a showmanship class and they also had lots of fun doing an obstacle course in the show ring. All the goat members learned about all the parts of a goat. Thank you to the goat leader Sharon Threatfull for judging the classes and organizing the Goat Day.
