Don’t even ask if your not from the country, you wouldn’t understand!
There were at least a dozen teams participating in today’s hog wrestling competition. Four team members are timed on how fast they can catch the slippery little pig covered in wet bentonite and place him butt first into the barrel in the middle of the ring. It was way too fun watching all these guys slip and slide throughthe mud to try to catch the pig!
Tori’s team put the pig into the barrel in about 11 seconds!
These poor kids had to keep scrubbing and scrubbing to get all the bentonite off their clothes, faces and arms. It so incredibly sticky(and slick)! Some of the kids were completely covered in it from head to foot and literally looked like they had been slimed!
Sawyer’s team completed in just over 15 seconds. Do you suppose Sawyer will EVER live down that Tori beat him? Not only did Tori’s team beat Sawyer’s but they won the entire Junior Class!
The 4-H group also held their annual awards ceremony and for fiber Sawyer and Tori won two separate trophies.
