Phew! What a mouthful that title was! But there is no denying that my lamb will be sleeping just fine after one of the biggest Thursday's of my and his life.
The morning sun shone brightly as I nervously led my lamb through the busy chattering crowds and quietly gave Boo a pep talk "I believe in you" I whispered.
After many seconds passed the judges were gathering our competition into a circle and giving us some crucial instructions on what to do and finally... lambs began leading around and around the circle, but all of that didn't matter because right now it was my turn and I was determined we would try our best.
I came second for leading and third for calling. But the moment that I had been working towards were these words...
"Champion senior lamb for this year is...... Emily Forsyth!"
This event is the biggest fundraiser for our school. Calf and Lamb day is definitely a sight to see. Many people from around the community help support this day and make it a huge success. All of the children, just like me have spent weeks training their animals to lead and call for lambs and many hours brushing their coats for the calves. We had a very successful cake and goods auction followed by a very exciting batons-up draw. As always the PTA BBQ was a hit with the crowd and the slushies' from the dairy cart went down a treat as it was such a hot day.
