And I just have to say this - there's a lot of power a person can have when they're critiquing youth.
Especially when you have a microphone and attentive audience.
But I was sure proud to be the wife of the judge on Sunday as he gave his reasons at the end of every class. I am continually amazed at how Clint can find multiple positive attributes - even when they're placed last - to tell a child about themselves and their cattle, while still accurately describing the cattle or showmanship style.
Congratulations to all of the kids who brought their cattle, and showed their hearts out.
You are the future of the beef industry - and it sure is fun to get to watch you be successful!
