Welcome to the Eagle County's First online auction!

     I am Kristell Henninger and this is my third year rasing market lambs. I am beyond blessed to have been able to even show my animals at this year's county fair. Overall this year has taught me so much. I would have never had so much gratitude for the minor things in life as I do now. I appreciate all the efforts that our livestock committee, 4H leaders, parents, and 4H members have done to make this year possible in the safest way imaginable.

     I raised two Hampshire lambs purchasing them in early to mid-April named Thunder and Lightning. Today I will be selling my wether Lightning. Let me tell you he sure does know how to live up to his name weighing 130 pounds. I started off this year halter breaking them, practicing showmanship etiquette, and as time progressed started to get a bit more aggressive with my training. I began to do morning walks, endurance glute exercises, powerwalks, evening sprints and stand driven positions. All of these exercises have created a muscular definition and a toned looking aesthetic. I have spent quality time with my animals with a minimum of two times a day. He has an excellent skeletal bone structure allowing him to gain muscle instead of boxing out. He has overall thickness through the center of his legs, long length in his hind saddle, and most importantly shape in his rack and a wide loin. 

     4H is an excellent program for youth to take responsibility and grow in the livestock industry. I joined 4H because of my passion for animal sciences. In the near future, I hope I can attend a university heavily focused on agriculture and production. My ultimate goal is to become a Sheep Specialist and Geneticist/Theriogenologist. To offer next level reproduction technology and conduct research that will innovate the industry even further. 4H is helping me reach my goal allowing me the experience necessary to pursue this career. I will enjoy going to work every day and I truly believe there is no better place than the Ag industry. With the money I earn every year I am saving up to go to college. I am going to be a junior this year taking DE/AP biology and some other ap classes in hopes to gain more knowledge. I am truly a fanatic when it comes to science and am excited to see where it takes me. 

     I appreciate you supporting my peers and the livestock community!
