                                         Trigg Francis has worked very hard getting his lamb ready for his very first show.          Reed Francis is also ready for his first show and loves chasing the lambs into the catch pen.

                                                                                                                                                         Reed also helped pen up West and Emory Conner’s Show hogs.  He ran them until he lost his boot
                                                in the mud but kept on going.
