Abbi is 11 and this is her 3rd year in 4-H,

Abbi's first year in 4-H her Mom, Jayna, 
bought her a ewe lamb.
She showed it as a lamb & yearling, 
going to State Fair both years. 
This year they had the ewe bred and she produced twins ...
a boy, Phlip and a girl, Phlop. (Flip & Flop, get it?)
Abbi showed both at 4-H County Fair, 
then with many tears, sold the boy at the auction. 
The girl, Phlop, is now at State Fair.

 My cousin Katha was active in 4-H when we were kids.
She had a wall full of blue ribbons and 
purple Grand Champion ribbons. I always admired 4-H.

The boys were competing in the ATV/Motocross 
races held at fair, but this was not in a 4-H competition.
