On May 11, 2013 we hosted our second bi-annual Show Lamb Camp with instructor Tracy Dendinger. This camp is a showmanship boot camp for any age of sheep showman. We spent the day working with lambs, most of which had not been worked with yet. This proved to be a challenging task. We learned, by experience, the best way to herd sheep. We also learned techniques for picking out flaws in your sheep and showing them to their best potential. We had many young members learning the ropes of showing for the first time and some for their second and third times.
While most of the attendees were from Elkhart County, we had a few out of county participants. We hope that in the future we will be able to reach out to more members of the show lamb community. This camp is an awesome learning activity for any age of showman.
At the end of the day, everyone had fun. The kids were wore out, as were the lambs. We want to thank all of the volunteers and helpers from the day!
