Possibly one of my favorite activities at the Kane County Fair is the Peewee Livestock Show. The little kids show such courage. They are as young as three, yet they step into the arena and show their animals. The day is very long for these little kids, yet they work hard and really put on a show. Just seeing their cute little faces, and watching them as they compete, is reward enough for supporting the show.

 

The Girl and her Lamb

 

By Myrna Cox

The sweetest girl, I do declare,

Was Callie – at the County Fair.

In the arena, with her sheep,

A little tired, almost asleep –

But determined – was quite a fight

She held on, mighty tight.

As sheep and girl, we all know,

Both put on a winning show.

Little Callie, oh so sweet,

with, her groomed, and well-loved, sheep.
