Showing Texas Longhorns

Another great show behind us for the 2017-2018 season. The boys just returned home from the STLA Spring Longhorn Show in Rockdale, Tx. This show all three of the boys got in on the action. Levi entered the ring for his first time competing in the Pewee Class. He was helped by a very special lady that shows for the NASA Show Team, Zaida Espinosa. On Sunday, Levi was again helped by another young lady, Hannah Smith, from the Leander Show Team. Thank you very much ladies for Helping Levi have a great experience for his first time showing! Both Joseph and Levi won championships twice in their Pewee Classes over the two days. Christian and DBS Chewbaca did great as always racking up a 2nd and 5th place finish and a 3rd in Showmanship in the two days. DBS Tari Misu Rio made her second showing in the ring with a 9th out of 15, not bad considering  she was the youngest in class and beat 6 calves that were 2 months older than her!
