CARROLL COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI)—For these 4-H'ers in Carroll County it's not just about showing animals. It's about tradition.

"I show alpacas, pigs, cows, and goats,” said 4-H’er Mackinzie Myers

16-year-old Mackenzie Myers has been showing animals for eight years. She said there's a lot of work that goes into it.

"You work with them like every day and train them how to do it and what you want them to do,” said Myers.

16-year-old Caleb Meek says what was supposed to be a joke birthday gift for a friend, turned into 8 years of showing goats.

"It's actually a pretty funny story,” said Meek. “It was for my brother’s birthday. A friend got him a goat just a mess around present. And then it turned into 40 of them."

Meek said while he wasn't expecting to show goats. He's learned important lessons.

"It builds leadership,” said Meek. “Just to go out there and have the self-confidence to go out in the ring and show it off. And then time management is a big part of it especially when you have forty at home."

For Cassy Hart this is her last year competing in 4-H. She's been showing animals at the 4-H fair for ten years. Now she'll step down to mentor other young 4-H'ers.

"I have minnies that look up to me and that I've helped and things like that,” said Hart. “So I'll come back and watch them."

Hart says she has learned a lot that she'll always remember.

"I've learned a lot of life skills that I can take on with me like responsibility,” said Hart. “I mean I have to take care of the animals. Not only while they are also at my house."

The Carroll County 4-H fair will go until Friday, July 19th. Then they will hold an auction to raise money for next year's 4-H tradition.
