Letter to the editor: 4-H’ers work hard with their animals

Washing! Washing is one of the many duties performed by 4-H’ers to get ready for the fair.

Other responsibilities include clipping, feeding, cleaning out pens, exercising, practicing, showing, and loving.

We 4-H’ers work very hard and put a great deal of time and effort into our animals, even the ones we only have for a couple months.

My name is Elizabeth Dean and I have two goats whose names are Shrek and Fiona. I am planning to sell Shrek at the San Diego County Fair on Monday, July 1. The auction starts at 10am.

I will take Fiona to the Ramona Junior Fair and sell her at the auction on Saturday, Aug. 3. Currently, I am raising a chicken meat pen to take to the Ramona Junior Fair. I hope you can come to the fair and possibly bid on an animal.
