Taylor, I appreciate your response. But unknown to you I am a grandparent. We raised our children in 4-H and FFA and now our grandchildren are involved. Our children raised and showed animals for many years. But what we saw at this show was children when not showing and siblings and/or friends of those showing, were told by parents to go play and check back in 30 minutes or so. They were not watching or participating in the shows but constantly running up and down the bleachers and walkways totally unsupervised. Some had play guns running and waving them around everyone screaming and hollering. Others were hanging around outside amoung the vehicles. Times have changed and when children are left to wander off unsupervised it puts them in poterntially dangerous situtations with other children and adults. But it wasn't just the kids it was adults there that were rude in so many ways. If you could see and hear what was going on in the show ring you could see what children work their own animals and which ones their parents had worked for them. And forget trying to get pictures or videos because of other individual's lack of concern for others. You stated there are no dysfunctional families that raise animals for these shows then you stated the dysfunctinal families don't last long there, interesting. Being stressed and sleep deprived is no excuse for rudeness that is life. The gut wrenching feeling you have when being judged, win or lose in the show, the time spent with your children that year should be worth more than any prize or money won or lost at the show. To complete the time of caring, working,meetings,traveling, and showing animals the children also need to learn to be considerate and thoughtful of others. I would be very concerned about putting animals that had cost my family so much time and money in pens that were questionable to the health and well being of the animals. I must say I don't know who is responsible for the show barn but why not have fun raisers and get donations to improve the show barn? Why not go the the county and request help, if they give money to sports why not to the show barn in this rural community? We are talking about the Wilson County Show Barn. Just look at the small towns in Wilson County that have better facilities for their show. Why?
This is such a great time in the lives of these families and just like everything in life you get out of this time what you put in it. After reading your comment if almost seems like you are trying to justify the people being rude. I hope that was not you intent. Best wishes to you and your family and cherish these years as they will be gone in a wink.
