In this first picture you can tell she is having fun, and check out the pink boots!
All the kids have to do is keep the animal moving around the ring so all the people that are bidding can get a good look at them. She had to get the pig to move out of the corner, and to do that they take the cane and tap them on the side or back to get their attention and to keep them moving.
As you can see here we were sitting in the front row of the bleachers, as close as we could to the ring to be able to get good pictures. I was a very proud of my grandaughter and how calm she was for being only 9. You would think she had been doing this for a long time. Oh, by the way, this pig brought $11.25/lb and weighed in at 270 lbs. This final picture is the Grand Champion Barrow of the fair and it belongs to the daughter of a co-worker of mine. What a great day at the fair!
