Even children too young to participate in 4-H have a chance to “get their boots in the door.”

The PeeWee Sheep Showmanship provides these young ones with the opportunity to show exhibiters lambs.

The event, which took place Friday morning in the Doug Wilson Building, teaches the youngsters how to walk with the animals during a competition and present them to a judge.

Participants were rewarded with goodie bags that were handed out by 2018 Huron County Junior Fair royalty.

Huron County Junior Fair Superintendent Nicole Stevens is someone who puts the event together.

Stevens said children ages 8 and younger can participate. The youngest participant in this year’s event was 2.

Before entering the gate, 6-year-old Anderson Tallman said he was excited.

“It’s my first time with a sheep,” Tallman said, about showing.

His father said they prepared by getting tips and pointers from others who show.
