The numbers of both youth and dogs at this year’s Sheridan County Fair were down slightly from previous years.
Dog Superintendent Susie Terry explained.
The show started at 9 a.m. Monday in the Exhibit Hall. Terry said 13 youth signed up, but only 12 came for the events that included showmanship, obedience, conformation, rally and agility.
That last, Terry said, is everyone’s favorite event.
Some of the young exhibitors had more than one dog, so a total of 14 to 16 animals competed for ribbons.
Most of the events were in the Exhibit Hall, although agility moved outside. Those who came to watch the shows in the Exhibit Hall were asked to wear masks, and no more than 50 people at a time were allowed inside the building.
