Showing animals is a family affair

TEMPLE HILL — It was a rainy morning as children from preschool through high school gathered in the Barren County Fair barn with a cadre of sheep, goats and a hog to take their turn parading the impressive animals around the ring.

With an increase of entrants in all categories of the sheep, goat and hog show, Barren County 4-H Youth Development Extension Agent Paula Tarry said this year’s show was a success.

“We’ve really increased our numbers,” Tarry said. “It’s become more popular.”

Goats have grown in popularity over the last two years because their smaller size makes them a good animal for young children to show and they are less expensive and need less space than show animals like cows and horses, Tarry said. Sheep have been popular for showing in Kentucky about the last decade, and hogs are making a comeback, she added.

“We’re making progress in all of those areas,” Tarry said.
