Many young boys have a dream of being a cowboy. A small group of college students decided to bring this dream to life. Several young men from Texas determined to ride all the way from Mexico to Canada, and rode through Morgan earlier this week.

On Saturday, June 1 4-H and FFA members from around the county and surrounding areas gathered at the Morgan County Fairgrounds for the June Livestock Show. Students from grades 3 to 12 presented show steers and lambs to be judged in market and showmanship classes. In the market classes, the animals were put into groups based on their weight and were judged on their build and the quality of the animal. In the showmanship classes, students were divided by grade into senior, intermediate and junior showmanship groups. The students were then judged on their knowledge and ability to handle their animal and their animal’s appearance and behavior.

The 2012 Morgan County Horse 4-H season came to a close this past month with the final State Individual Show being held in Salina on Sept. 7 and 8.  Morgan County had 12 youth who worked hard during the summer show season to qualify for the opportunity to travel to the state individual meet.  The state competition is a two-day show with nearly 300 qualified youth from all over the state congregating to compete for coveted event and all-around titles. Events scheduled for Friday were judged events and included fitting and showmanship, western equitation, and bareback equitation.  Events on day two of the show were all timed and this year included barrels, poles, and the scurry.

This past Saturday the Morgan County Horse 4-H Council held their first horse show of the 2011 season. Due to a concerning equine virus outbreak this spring, the horse show scheduled to be held in June was cancelled, leaving only two remaining State qualifying shows.  Any Morgan County horse 4-H member hoping to qualify for the opportunity to attend State Finals in Salina this September understood the increased significance of points earned at this show.

“To make the best better”, is the 4-H motto. It’s also the feeling conveyed when talking with Jessie Franich about her 4-H Horse riding Club. Jessie has been a 4-H leader with the riding club “The Wet Blankets” since 1980. How the name came to be, she remembers, “When the kids were working on a name for the club, they thought when a horse works hard the blanket gets wet. Wet blankets make good horses.”
