Tipping the scales

August 8, 2011

Bids rained from the skies during Saturday’s livestock sale — which saw a record paid for a lamb that eventually helped a long-time 4-H scholarship fund — at the Auglaize County Fair.
Bidders packed into the show ring as hogs and lambs were displayed for sale in the new hog building. The morning kicked off with a frenzied bidding for the Grand Champion Market Barrow, showed by RaNae Bornhorst. When the final bids were tallied, the hog netted $8,000 for the daughter of Terri and Glenn Bornhorst.

August 8, 2011

Domino, a black-and-white cocker spaniel-dachsund mixed puppy, sits quietly in his owner’s lap waiting for their turn in the fenced off show arena in the Junior Fair Building.
He would at times switch laps to one of Ky Knoch’s friends or relatives, getting a better view of his surroundings and a few more pettings on his head and scratches under his chin.
Ky, 10, of Botkins said she thought bringing Domino to the fair and training him for the obedience portion of the show would be fun and would be good training for the 10-month old puppy.
