the annual nova scotia 4-h show

The Annual Nova Scotia 4-H Show was held in Bridgewater September 27-29, 2013. It took place at the outside show arena on the South Shore Exhibition grounds where we were greeted with a weekend of sunshine and warm weather. Judge Matthew Crouse of Wittenburgh, had his hands full with classes containing up to 25 lambs. There were 111 4-H participants and 94 lambs from 15 of the 18 counties in NS in 11 sheep events.

Royal canadian winter fair - TD Junior sheep show

The 2013 Jr. Sheep Show at The Royal was a huge success. The CSBA received a great deal of exposure, as we had the highest number of entries from the past 5 years. We hope to continue this trend into 2014 and future years, as youth are truly the future of The Royal and Canadian agriculture. This year, our open show judge (Blair Dow) brought his son (Travis Dow) along, from Alberta, to participate in the TD Jr. Sheep Show, where he ended up as Reserve Champion in the Junior age category. We hope that his experience may encourage other youth exhibitors from out west to make the trek to Ontario for The Royal in 2014. 

Each and every year, youth continue to be the shining stars of the Royal and are celebrated throughout the full 10 days through the support of sponsors. Your sponsorship of the 2013 TD Jr. Sheep show is very much appreciated by both The Royal and our youth exhibitors. The pizza lunch this year was a huge success, and we hope that we can continue this partnership into the future.​

Letter from Johanna Walker

Dear Nancy Mallinson,

I know myself I always looked forward to that time of year when I would have to pick out my 4-H ewe lamb. There were so many factors I had to remember when I was looking at the lambs, but even with all this in mind, often times, and the thing that separated my top two lambs was their attitude or how "cute" they were. I have been out of 4-H for a few years now, but every year I still relish in the joy that the 4-H youth get when they come and look at stock on our farm.

I was honored this year with the opportunity to offer one of my purebred stock to a young lady by the name of Brooke Webb. Brooke was the winner of the 2013 draw for funding, from the Canadian Sheep Breeders Association, towards the purchase of a purebred ewe lamb. Brooke belongs to the Agassiz Rainbow 4-H club, and has been in 4-H for 8 years (an active sheep club member for a number of those years). She had approached me just a month after the lambs were born, curious and eager to see what I had. Through a few farm visits and conversations, she set her heart on the lamb (born late February) seen in the picture attached this article. I have had the privilege of going to see the lamb at her new home a few times now, and have to admit I couldn't have been happier to see one of my flock at such a wonderful home.

I would like to thank, with all my heart, Brooke, for helping me find a loving home and family for one of my flock, and to the CSBA for supporting sheep 4-Hers in their pursuit of purebred stock.

Thanks again Johanna Walker
