This week I’ve been covering the Williamson County Livestock Association’s 72nd Annual Livestock Show at the Wilco Expo Center in Taylor. Williamson County, Texas is near a big city (Austin), but kids here embrace the country life. It’s evident during these events. Highs and lows are the norm each time I attend. The little lady embracing her goat in the opening photo is someone who has been in front of my camera before. As much as I try, it’s hard to not document her work. Even though she’s just 8, she works with her animals like a pro. One little boy with this post couldn’t hold back his emotions during breeding goat competition. While I can’t say what the problem was, it was great to see such a supportive father there to make things better. Anyway, my coverage focuses on goats, lambs and a few pigs. These youngsters live and breathe this stuff.
