Shelton Hatch, age 14 and her sister Kerrigan Hatch age 9 gave their 4-H presentation to the residents of Westbrook Acres on Aug. 31, 2011.  They brought Kerrigan’s crossbred steer in for the residents to enjoy.  Kerrigan talked about how he got his name, “Stormy”.  She got him from the Tama sale barn the day after the big storm hit Tama County.  She explained how she showed him at the Tama Co. fair in the Pee Wee Wrangler class in July.  She dressed him up in shorts, tank top, hat and sunglasses to show him.  She also showed her woodworking project and her three photography projects.  Shelton talked about her 4-H steer and market heifer project and explained about the work that goes into them each day.  She talked about winning Sr. Showmanship, Reserve Champion Market Heifer, Reserve Champion Open Steer at the County Fair, as well as being in the top three for showmanship at the Iowa State Fair, winning a belt buckle and a purple ribbon and a blue ribbon with her steer at State Fair.  Shelton went on to explain about her market lamb project also.  Residents and visitors were able to ask several questions and tell about some of their 4-H experiences. Shelton and Kerrigan are members of the Gladbrook Gals and Guys 4-H club and are the daughters of Kenneth and Shelleen Hatch.
