At the end of the evening and traipsing from Hunter Arena to the Junior Fair Barn then the dairy barn and back to Hunter Arena for the announcement of the winner, an en- thusiastic Emily Bookless, a 16 year old junior from Ridgewood and a member of the Kamelid Kushers, took home the title. Bookless has competed in the contest before and learned how to improve each year. She said, “Th is is my third year competing in the Showman of Showmen. I am very shocked about it - it is a lot of hard work going between all the breeds and trying to learn everything all in one day but I’m really excited. It’s a fun experience.” “Th e toughest animal to show was the sheep - just trying to brace it - I’m very little so it was kind of hard. Th e beef seemed the easiest to me (besides the llama which Emily shows). 160 Years Combined Experience • 740-622-3669 • 224 N. 4th St., Coshocton •
