Jacob had a great fair. His favorite projects this year were his rabbits and woodworking.
He took 8 rabbits. Our fair board bought brand new cages last year for the poultry and rabbits and we didn't want them to just sit empty, so they decided that they would take whatever they wanted comments on or to qualify for state fair.
He got Reserve Champ, with a black jr doe Havana named AJ. He got 6 blues, 1 red due to a hollow back end on a Californian, and a white ribbon on a little black Havana buck who has both testicles, one just hasn't descended yet.
He went head to head with his brother doing rabbit showmanship. Jacob ended up being the champion with 10 points ahead. He got a really nice duffel bag at the awards presentation.
In woodworking, he made a gun rack out of cherry. He got Grand Champion on it, and gets to take it to the state fair.
In cooking, he made Snickerdoodles and Peanut Butter Toffee Cookies, and received state fair blues on both.
I was thrilled with his growth in photography this year. I saw him taking pictures of things that you normally wouldn't stop and say "I'd like a picture of that," just to see what the result would be.
