Every Show Needs a Pee Wee Showmanship

Every Show Needs a Pee Wee Showmanship

One of the most important skills anyone can walk out of the ring with is a sense of pride and confidence.

Many young people start with their large animal 4-H projects at nine or ten years old. For younger children, however, there’s still a way for them to get show experience.

World, I give you pee wee showmanship.

While it varies from show to show, many local county fairs and livestock shows have a pee wee showmanship class which allows children, usually between five and eight years old, to step into the ring and show a lamb, calf, kid, or hog. It’s not only a great chance for these children to get a chance to build confidence, but they can become comfortable around livestock.

Plus, it’s just so darn cute to watch.
