It was 2008, July 7th it was not that hot that day, but it was on the warmer side. I was nine years old. It was the first time I’ve ever shown a rabbit. In fact it was the first time I’ve shown with the “big” kids. My dad told me, “You could do it.” I said, “No I can’t.”
Before the show started I got to practice with my rabbit a couple times. Then the show started. They started with the younger kids first then progressed to the older ones. During that time I was studying while I waited for them to call my age group. Then I hear my age group gets called up. They called my number to go get my rabbit. It felt like a mile walk to its cage. Then I walk up to the table. I did just like I practiced with my dad. I didn’t miss one step, and I answered all the questions they asked I got right. They finish with all the age groups. Then I start to go when I hear my number called back up to the table. To my surprise I had to show my rabbit again. But this time it wasn’t with my age group. It was with all the age groups ranging from nine to nineteen years old. We finish doing what the judges tell us to do. They walk away and they talk about us. Then over the speaker I hear,” This is the first time this in Montcalm County 4-H fair that this has been won with a Himi.” Right then I knew I won showman ship. It was awesome! I just beat a nineteen year old in rabbit showman ship. With this big win in my belt I felt like I could do anything. I was terribly wrong. I was informed sense I won rabbit showman ship I had to show all the animals at the fair. That means animals from a guinea pig to a cow. I got 8th in that show. Even though I didn’t win that show I still got to go to the State 4-H show. That’s the story about how I won rabbit showman ship.
