Oh my it broke my heart that at her age Maddie came out with she is drinking water to stay skinny good for you on explaining to her it is to stay strong & healthy !People have asked me if I didn't feed Kayleigh .Pfft ! You have seen her eat! I feed her still . Made me livid I did not aim for a thin child just a healthy one.She was a preemie it turned out her system devours calories.I still don't stop anyone from eating in my house. I make good healthy food. I take into consideration allergies and blood pressure but I don't make people eat starvation diets that just messes up their system worse.Kayleigh had a ballet friend die of anorexia.Nasty stuff. This convoluted ideology has to stop.Helthy is good stick insect thin is not unless it is your norm .Some people can eat everything and never gain an ounce (lucky dogs !) 5 days ago
Loved your story about your 4H experience, too! I only had experiences with horses in 4H back in the day when grade horses outnumbered the registered ones. That is no longer the case, but at least there are no laws against grade horses.
Glad you got to raise the calf even if the 4H board ruined your plans. They should think before making rules like that. My daughter raised a heifer in 4 H and ended up selling her in the sale, she was a registered holstein. The next year, she had a lamb and didn't make the sale, so we ate that one! 9 days ago
