Dear New Kid in the Show Barn
Dear new kid in the barn,
Welcome to showing livestock. You are about to begin a journey that will forever change your life. You will have ups and downs, smiles and tears, but most importantly, memories that will last a lifetime.
It might be a little scary at first, but don’t be afraid to make friends or ask for help. If you are willing to learn and want to give it your all, everyone will respect that and will be ready to lend a hand.
Also, being excellent takes time so when it doesn’t go as planned, don’t get your head down. Keep trying and most importantly, never give up. Just when you think success will never come, it will take you by surprise and things will start going right.
It’s not going to be easy, but it will be worth it. You are about to find a new part of your heart you never knew existed, about to meet some of the best friends you will ever have, and most importantly learn valuable life skills that you will use forever. Buckle up and enjoy the ride.
Welcome to the stock show life.
