Family and friends traveled from all over the state of New Mexico to support 9-year-old Cache Wry at the Market Lamb show at the Eastern New Mexico State Fair, Wednesday, and they didn’t leave disappointed. Wry’s black face lamb was named Grand Champion of the show, much to Wry’s excitement. The Estancia resident is the son of Brad and Kasi Wry and a member of the Ropers 4-H Club. He said that most of his excitement came from the fact that he’s never won anything like this, but some of it came from a promise made by his sister. Wry said his sister promised to buy him a ferret if his lamb took top prize and now she must deliver on that promise.
Jessica Burson’s black face lamb was named Reserve Grand Champion in the show, not bad considering it was his first show.
The 18-year-old Roswell resident is the daughter of Cody and Cheri Burson, and a representative of the Goddard FFA and Barn Buddies 4-H Club and said the win came much to her surprise.
“Everyone out here worked really hard,” she said “And it’s great when you win, because you can see all of your hard work pay off. I wasn’t expecting it, but it’s great to be able to achieve something like this.”
