Riley Hites of the Taylor Creek Lads and Lassie’s 4H had a great year this year at the Hardin County Fair. This year Riley won Grand Champion Market Lamb, Grand Champion Market Goat, Grand Champion Market Dairy Goat and Reserve Champion Market Dairy Goat.
Watching Riley show you can tell she takes her job seriously in the show arena and she has worked month and months with her animals. It was Riley’s actions on sale day that caught my attention and I realized just what the Hardin County Fair means to Riley.
With Riley entering the sale ring with her Grand Champion Market Dairy Goat the auctineer made an announcement to the crowd of bidders. Riley was donating her winnings from her Champion Market Dairy Goat back to The Hardin County Fair Foundation.
The crowd erupted and the bidding began. Riley’s heart and passion for the projects she shows and her love for the Hardin County Fair and its future is the true spirit of 4H!
Great job Riley and I was so glad to see this all take place.
