GOLIAD - Eli Luco, 4, stood just a bit taller than his goat, but was following the family tradition of competing in his first peewee goat judging on Friday morning at the Goliad County Fair and Rodeo.

The 4-year-old's brother, Payton Luco also competed in the 6 to 8 age group.

"They've been practicing for a while, about three months," said Stephanie Luco, their mother who also showed during her school years.

"I actually showed steers, heifers and lambs," she said.

Although the two didn't place, they were happy to receive trophies for their hard work.

Children who compete in peewee are not able to sell their animals at auction, but do receive a buckle for reserve and grand champion.

"Payton's already asking me about 4-H," she said. Students must be 9 years old or in the third grade to join 4-H.

"I want to show heifers and lambs," the 6-year-old said.

Brooke Yanta, 8, will make that transition next year after competing for her last time in the peewee division.

"It was hard work," Brooke said, after winning grand champion.

The 8-year-old also gave her sister, Abby Yanta, 4, tips on her first peewee goat judging.

"We practiced together," said Brooke, who won grand champion at the age of 4.

"I was nervous," said Abby, but enjoyed receiving a trophy.

The reserve champion winner Ashlyn Davis, 8, also is preparing to join 4-H.
