It’s awesome how one day led to a group of determined people and two days of fun filled 4-H events. Early in February, the Lakedell Agricultural Society hosted the annual multi-species judging. Susann Stone and Kyley Denschikoff noticed some of the Lakedell Lighthorse members’ interests and talent throughout the judging events. This led to an immediate formation of a judging team, including Amy Belec, Kate Harink, Mackenzie Denschikoff, Annalise Tremblay, as well as Brittany Lange and Cobie Snellen as subs.
The team’s first competition was on March 14th in Vermillion at the Lakeland College. After a few hours of judging, our results came in and we were happy of our team’s placing as well as our own personal achievement.
Then we put on our judging outfits and big smiles once again as we entered our second judging day on March 29th in Edmonton at Northland’s farm and ranch show. But this time we welcomed Cobie Snellen to our team because Amy Belec could not attend. Bright and early that morning, we found out that not only were we judging the usual beef, horse, fleece, and hay classes. There were chickens, alpacas, and a mystery class as well! After a few hours of judging, came awards… our Lakedell Lighthorse team won top overall! Our team came home that day with proud smiles, personal achievements, and one more reason to love 4-H.
