Hi, folks! My name is Elsa, and my owner’s name is Cheyenne Yahnke and this year is Cheyenne’s first year as a junior member of the Horsefly 4-H Club. Cheyenne’s project this year is a market swine, and that’s ME! I am a Duroc X bred gilt, and some of the things I love to do is annoy people. Like, umm … getting my head stuck in a bucket full of water, and tipping it all over.
I also like playing in mud and then splattering it all over Cheyenne. Some of the things I like to do other than annoying people is eating. I love eating! Also, I am really cool. Like, really! I have a green ear piercing, with the number #99 written on it. Wasn’t that the famous hockey player Gretzky’s number? But really. He is just a human, not a sophisticated pig, like me. But all that aside, I would like to invite you to the 61st Annual 4-H Show and Sale in Williams Lake at the Stockyards on Cattel Drive form Aug. 8-12. Come by and see me and my human owner, Cheyenne, at the Horsefly swine stalls.
Sincerely: Elsa and Cheyenne – Lot #99.
Hello. My name is Ethan Lazar and this is my first year of 4-H in Horsefly. I am doing small engines and my project is an Arctic Cat 800 snowmobile in a King Cat 900 shell. When I purchased it, it wouldn’t even try to start. I thought this would be a great 4-H project. So far I have replaced the motor, the gaskets and the spark plugs. With this said it will be good running condition. I’m going to be selling my project in the auction at the Williams Lake 61st Annual 4-H Show and Sale. I would like to invite you to come view and talk to me more about my sled.
Hi. My name is Joey Augustine. I’m 13 years old and this is my seventh year in the Horsefly 4-H Club. This year my proejcts are Steer, Heifer, Cow-Calf and Foods. My steer’s name is Ozzy. He’s a purebred Black Angus and born and raised on our family ranch. This year I have a registered purebred Black Angus heifer named Jamie. I purchased her from Schochanequa Angus. I’m bringing her to many different shows including BC Ag Expo, Canadian Junior Angus Showdown and Prospect 2000. I also have a cow-calf pair. My cow is named Gigi. She calved this May. She produced a good-sized bull calf that I named Ezra. Come and see my projects at the Williams Lake Stockyards on Aug. 8-11 with the sale on the 12th. Hope to see you there!
Hi. My name is Willa-Lyn Redl and I am a member of the Horsefly 4-H Club. This is my second year in Cloverbuds. This year I have learned about sewing, dogs, swine, horses, goats and bike safety. I really enjoyed learning about swine and goats because we do not have those animals on our ranch. This year I have gotten better at judging and public speaking. I am looking forward to taking a steer project next year. This year our Williams Lake and District 4-H Show and Sale starts on Aug. 8 at the Williams Lake Stockyards. There are many animals and other projects to come see. We even have llamas on display this year. Hope to see you there!
Hi there! My name is Coconut! And that’s my owner, Rosetta Yahnke, over there. She is about 16 years old, or something like that, and this is her ninth year as a member in the Horsefly 4-h Club. Her most annoying habit is … well, everything! Aside from me, Rosetta’s other 4-H project is photography. But enough about her, after all you came to see ME! As I said before my name is Coconut, and I am a Duroc X bred gilt. I love water, mud and making messes, you might say I am a bit of a vain porker, as my owner likes to dress me up with a halter and lead me around like high class model. But the tables will turn soon, as when I attend the 61st annual 4-H Show and Sale at the Williams Lake Stockyards from Aug. 8-12 on Cattle Drive, that is when I get to lead Rosetta around! Why don’t you come visit me and my owner at the Horsefly club stalls. My lot number is #100. Hope to see you there!
