2012: SGF SAKE Jacqui was the first Dexter shown in Deuel County, and also the first Dexter shown by the Collins family at the 2012 Deuel County Achievement Days. Lane had a blast and did a great job caring for and showing his purple ribbon Jacqui. We hope that Jacqui is the first in a long line of Dexters shown by our family.
2013: Jacqui made another appearance at the Deuel County Fairgrounds, this time with her new calf: CCR SNIC Ruby in the "Bred and Owned" class. Lane won first place in the class, and Beau helped showed Ruby. Lane was awarded a trophy and a purple ribbon.
2013: SGF SDAK Johanna won 1st place in the "Other Registered Breeds" class. Her only competition was Jubilee, but she truly is a show winner. Beau enjoyed his first year showing cattle: He received the "True Grit" award- Johanna had got away from him in the ring, but he stuck with it and came back in the ring to win the class, and then again to compete for the overall female.
2013: CCR Jubilee was shown by Lane and awarded a purple ribbon. She was the easiest heifer to train that summer and we look forward to her potential milking career.
2013: CCR SNIC Ruby won a purple ribbon in the Baby Beef class. Beau showed her in that class and also for the Beginner Showmanship class. She was a hit at the fairgrounds. Beau is showing off his show halter he received for winning the true grit award with Johanna.
2014: Jane was the only Dexter that made it the fair in 2014, so she didn't have any competition, but she did well and Lane enjoyed the time he spent with her. She is the 3rd Josie daughter to go to the fair.
