Local sheep, goats sweeten born, raised shows

Goats and sheep grown in Logan County were in the spotlight Thursday afternoon in Junior Fair action with born and raised shows for each species presented one right after the other.

KAYLA CUMMINS, GRAND CHAMPION LAMB BORN AND RAISED


Both grand champions and the reserve goat were given sweet names by their exhibitors.

Marshmallow captured the grand champion banner for exhibitor Kayla Cummins of rural Bellefontaine in the Born and Raised Lamb Show.

It was the fifth straight grand champion title for Kayla, who is a freshman at Indian Lake High School. The lamb was bred by Shroyer Show Stock of DeGraff. Marshmallow joined Chocolate, Graham and Cracker as Kayla’s other lamb projects this year, completing a decadent dessert.

“He’s really nice and kind and lets me pet him. He gives lots of affection for a sheep and he likes to chew on my hair,” Kayla said.

She also placed third overall in the show with another entry.

Taylor Hites wasn’t thinking about food when she named her reserve champion born and raised lamb winner. Rather, she looked to That 70s Show and selected Fez, one of the characters from the comedy.
