Whiskey Creek Ranch is a proud supporter of 4-H in Canada. Both myself and Clay were young 4-Her's and I continued to be a part of beef, horse and sheep 4-H until I graduated high school. If those 9 years of 4-H taught me anything (and it taught me A LOT!) it is to live by the 4-H Motto- LEARN TO DO BY DOING! Whether it's grooming a 4-H steer, picking out the perfect meat lamb, working hard to achieve that next level of horsemanship or speaking in front of a crowd confidently, strongly and eloquently, 4-H gives young people the opportunity to grow, develop and become valuable contributing members of their society.
<- Blast from 4-H Past: Jesse & Clay get ready for the 2008 Brooks and Area Show & Sale / Achievement Day by scrubbing Jesse's 4-H Steer!
I would highly encourage any parents looking for activities for their children, to look into the 4-H program. 4-H is offered across Canada (and the world) in big and small communities. It also offers a wide range of projects including livestock, small engines, sewing/home economics, photography, scrapbooking and the list goes on and on. Basically, if you can dream up a project, you can create a 4-H Club to suit it!
