When I started showing animals though, September began the race towards fair time. All summer I would walk my steers morning and evening. Then bathe them morning and evening and brush them dry. To get really pretty show steers then you needed lots of hair. Once school started though, it meant getting up way before daylight, washing them down brushing them dry and then catching the school bus. As soon as we got off the school bus, we changed clothes and went back out to the steer pens until bedtime.
Thank you for coming along today, down the paths of my mind.
Happy Labor Day,
