Tolar High School senior Morgan Jackson proved that last year was no fluke.
She repeated as grand champion in the county lamb show Thursday at the 58th Hood County Junior Livestock Show.
“I’m done. I’m leaving it to my little brother (Logan, a sixth-grader),” Jackson said about her last Hood County show.
She’s not sure where she’ll go to college, but she wants to continue being around livestock. She plans to study animal reproduction.
Jackson, 18, a Tolar FFA member, credits her success to “spending countless hours in the barn” with her medium-wool lamb.
“Hard work and dedication” are the keys, she believes. And, “making livestock your top priority.”
Ty Roberson’s father Homer Robertson joked about his son always being the bridesmaid.
In the Hood County Lamb Show Thursday, Robertson won reserve grand champion lamb honors for the third time, including the last two in a row.
Many youngsters would trade that “bridesmaid” role with Robertson.
Robertson, 17, a Granbury High junior, said his medium-wool lamb was basically problem-free this year.
It hasn’t always been that way.
“In the past there was sickness or something else going on,” he said.
Robertson said winning a county trophy “takes commitment and lots of hard work.”
