Life On The Farm As The Years Fly Bye

We All Learn At a Different Pace

What did I learn about myself through my 4-H participation?

I learned that it is not easy to be 16 and on the edge of adulthood.

Head - to clear thinking, when giving your word to someone, think about how it will affect your heart if you buckle to peer pressure and go against your morals and ethics .

Heart - to greater loyalty; loyalty is something that is given freely and cannot be demanded or forced upon someone.

Hands - to larger service, you can only do what you feel is right and work hard to achieve your goals.

Health - to better living; if your word is your honor, and you stand fast to your morals and ethics; loyalty will come to you freely, your goals will be realized, and you will make a difference in the world around you.

I love 4-H !

Peer pressure is one of the hardest things we face; stay true to yourself no matter how hard it is and make a difference!

From Start to Finish - Spring 2008

When working with your 4-H steers its all about scheduling and presistance. You feed at the same time, and water at the same time everyday.

When you work with them you need to be cool and calm, if your excited your steers will feel it and they will be excited. You also need to talk to them, your steers need to hear and know your voice.
Talk about any thing, sing, say your ABC, or if you had a bad day tell them about it; they won't tell anyone.

When in the show ring your voice will be their comfort zone, I even smell the same I use lavender soap so that my steers know my smell.
