The heart and soul of 4H
The heart and soul of 4H
What a fabulous fair this year! The excitement and anticipation was palpable as hundreds of kids organized and cleaned up their animals to show, polished their projects to put on display and even more parents and grandparents gathered to help and admire all the hard work that goes into 4H Fair.  The Metra Park was a buzz of activity for the entire week with horse shows, rabbit shows, bovine and swine shows and all of the other critters in the barns. It's never an easy thing to raise an animal for months, giving them all the proper care they need to thrive, then to sell them at market... but that process sure does offer a lot of life lessons to those kids as they learn about just what it takes to be responsible. 
We LOVE helping out those fair kids with all the show supplies and feed they need to have a successful show season. We love being able to cater to all the critters and most of the sports and to see all that hard work pay off. We know all the parents and kids are sure happy when 
fair is over, but just as equally excited to get started on the next year for 4H fair at the Montana Fair. 
Looking SHARP for the show!

s never a dull moment at Shipton's Big R, and today was no different! Trooper the Barrelman and Timberlake the bull came and visited for several hours at Big R West. This massive 3,000 lb Red Angus show bull seemed like he was having a good time getting TONS of attention from everyone who went into the store. Kids had a blast getting to meet the famous Trooper and get a picture with him too.

He'll get to enjoy a fantastic time at the Nascar race at the Chicagoland Speedway!  We hope to do this challenge again, as it was so much fun to see how competitive all those pros were doing their thing in the hot sun.
