Coleman County 2012 Livestock Show Little Britches

The Little Britches Division of the Coleman County Livestock Show is for exhibitors that are too young to show in the regular show. These exhibitors range in age from 2 to 8 years old. The show is held during a break in the pig show.

This year lambs, goats, pigs and steers were exhibited by the youngsters. All participants get their turn in the show ring and are interviewed.

This year, Judge Rebel Royall assisted Sarah Beal(Little Britches Superintendent), in the show ring. All participants received a blue ribbon and a dollar coin for their efforts.

The participants in the 2012 show included: Keaton Beets, Kevin Farrell, Christopher Rouse, Abigail Bible, Nevaeh Harwell, Jenna Jamison, Braden Barnett, Jaylie Steffey, Payton Garrett, McCall Garrett, Benjamin Olivares, Braxton Barker, Creed Vineyard, Jonathan Salazar, Ciana Salazar, Haylee Triplitt, Cole Fikes, Ty Laws, Levi Dunlap, Elle Jo Shields, Morgan Mattes, Alexis Bingham, Sadie Edington, Zane Moore, Allie Moore, Dayden Hunter and Arena Turner. With these young exhibitors, the future of our livestock show looks bright.
