Showman start out young, but soon they are become 18 and they have turned out to be pretty darn good showman. Those two GOOD looking young men are both my nephews Cody and Nick. Today it was Cody's day he is holding the Grand Champion Ewe and was named the Grand Champion Sr. Showman. Nick was named the Grand Premier Showman over all and will show in the Round Robin tonight. But at State Fair it could all be different.
Alpaca's are becoming more popular every year, this is Z and he is 2 years old. He and Cameron won the Jr. Costume class.
Oh yes, there is more to the fair then animals this is Josh's craft project. He not only did all the wood burning designs he also stained and varnished too. By the way this is a State Fair entry!!

If you are feeling trapped in the 4 walls around you take a step outside to your county fairs. See what young people all around us are doing with some of their time. There are animals that some of us have never seen or know anything about. Indianapolis is where the State Fair is hold it starts Aug. 8 and goes on till Aug. 22. Take a step out of the 4 walls you live in and attend your local county fair or take a short trip to the Indiana State Fair!!
