Twelve-year-old Emma Fjermedal of Seattle is showing Prancer, a crossbred lamb, along with three adult sheep at the Evergreen Fair in Monroe. Emma and her two sisters have “fostered” sheep at “The Barn” in Woodinville which offers non-farm kids an opportunity to work around the animals and show them at the fair as members of the Sammamish Valley 4-H Club.

Get a Grip 4-H Club members Julianne Carter (l) and Allison Rowley laugh as a 4-H parent tries to get their horses’ attention with a cookie. It worked. Julianne’s horse is Missy, a 7-year-old quarter horse; Allison’s is Mariah, a quarter horse/Clydesdale mix. Both competed in various horse events at the fair. Julianne is a sophomore at Woodinville High School and Allison is a junior at Bothell High School.
