Hello, my name is Joshua Gregr, I have been a Junior member in the South Country Craft and Critters 4-H club for 5 years. This is my 5th Lamb project. My lamb’s name is Shep, and he weighs approximately 98lbs. He is a Suffolk /Charlollais cross. My goal is to have him weigh 110lbs for the Auction on June 5th, 2021. I purchased Shep from Crestview Farms, Creston BC. I enjoy 4-H because it teaches me many valuable lessons that I will take with me into the future. I have learned how to raise a lamb, care for it and groom it for show. In 2019 I won 1st place ewe. Our activities are always fun, and the leaders are amazing to be around. I have learned while raising my project that not all things go as expected, but as long as you stay calm and ask for help, things will always work out. Outside of 4-H, I mostly play video games, play sports, and read but I do occasionally collect various rocks and crystals. I would like to thank Dr. Mike Stuckey for supporting me and for buying my 2020 lamb over anyone else’s.

Hello, my name is Sheldon Blumhagen and this is my first year in 4-H with the South Country Crafts and Critters 4-H club. My projects for this year have included Small Engines and Market Lamb. My lamb’s name is Snowball, and he is an East Friesen/Charollais Cross. He currently weights 106 lbs, and my goal is to have him weigh 115 lbs for the auction on June 5th, 2021. I purchased him from Crestview Farms in Creston BC. I have loved my lamb project and he is strong and cuddly. He walks well on his halter and is super calm. I have learned how to feed a lamb and have taken care of the chores. I am also learning about showmanship and marketing my project. I have taken my lamb to school and he has been used for different demonstrations. My three siblings have also loved spending time with Snowball and his buddy Snowflake. I also love to go fishing with my Dad and look forward to doing more this summer.

Hello, my name is Presley Scott and I have been in South Country Crafts and Critters 4-H club for 2 years. This is my 1st Lamb project. My lamb’s name is Lambo and he weighs approximately 70 lbs. He is a Suffolk/Charollais cross. My goal is to have him weight 95 lbs for the Auction on June 5th, 2021. I purchased Lamb o from Crestview Farms, in Creston B.c. I like 4-H because I have learned about animals and have got to experience raising my own lamb. I have learned that lambs are little but strong animals and if you do not spend time with them, like when I went camping) they get skittish and frisky. When I am not doing 4-H I am riding my horse, playing with Lambo or with my other animals.

Hello, my name is Kelly Graham and I have been in South Country Crafts and Critters 4H club for 6 years. This is my 5th market lamb. My lambs name is Willy Thompson, and he weighs approximately 90lbs. He is a Charlollais Ram and East Friesian/Suffolk cross ewe. My goal is to have him weigh in at 115lbs for the Auction on June 5th, 2021. I purchased my lamb from Crestview Farms, Creston BC on February 6th, 2021. Over the years I have learned and accomplished so much in 4‐H. I have achieved many awards as well like: Grand Champion (twice), 1st in Showmanship (four times), Overall Showman (twice), Best Groomed (twice), and Best Weight Gain (twice). This year I am hoping to achieve the same and I would like to thank Tammy Crosson Nostell for buying my 2020 lamb.

Hello, my name is Avery Schadeck and this is my first year in the Cranbrook 4-H Club. My lambs name is Shawn and she weighs approximately 95 lbs. She is a Charollais cross. Shawn came from a farm in Creston, B.C. She is a ewe and gets fed grain twice a day. As well as always having a constant supply of hay, minerals and water she also gets to go out on fresh pasture during the day.

- What have you learned raising your project?

 I have learned how to keep track of feed and weights as well as halter breaking, and grooming a lamb.

I have really enjoyed my first year in 4-H and I hope to continue next year. I would really love to be able to show my animal next year as well. 

Lexi Bishop Sheep.jpg

Hello! My name is Lexi Bishop and it is my 2nd year in 4-H and my 2nd year raising a lamb. My lamb’s name is Jeb and it has been fun to raise a lamb this year. My favourite thing about raising my lamb is to play follow the leader with him. I worked hard this year to teach my lamb to use a halter, feeding him in the morning and afterschool and just spending time with him. I have worked hard this year to learn how to do all of this.

Hello! My name is Ava Murdoch and it is my 5th year in 4-H and my 3rd year raising a lamb. My lamb’s name is Glen and he has been a great project lamb for me this year. My favourite thing about 4-H is public speaking because I like the feeling of accomplishment when I
finish a speech in front of people. I have learnt lots of things while raising lambs in 4-H and every year I get better at something. This year, my lamb does not like the halter, so I have had to spend lots of time working with him. The biggest thing I have learned this year is to have patience!

Violet Murdoch Sheep.jpg

Hello! My name is Violet Murdoch and it is my 3rd year in 4-H and my 1st year raising a lamb. My lamb’s name is Robbie and it has been fun to raise a lamb this year. My favourite thing about 4-H is getting to do games at our club meetings and going on hikes. I have learnt lots of things raising my lamb like how to weigh his food, tracking how much he grows and grooming him (that has been kind of hard!). I have worked hard this year to learn how to do all of this.
