If you can't set a good example, then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

I did great! Took the top of my class and then came back and got Reserve Grand Champion overall. Lost to a 2 1/2 year old bull, who happened to be the brother of my bull (from the guy I bought mine from). I got an awesome trophy to start my collection. Almost made it to the All American Breeds class, but the Grand Champion Brahman lost to a Simbrah.

Congrats. Keep up the good work and don't let your hat get to small.
That has ruined more potential successful showmen/showgirls than anything.
