Kid is his 20 year old feedlot purchase from Bobby Gottsch (all the money I had at age six) and turned him into a pole bending horse. Chance says that his best memory of 4-H is all the people that you meet that truly care for you, the connections you make, the great lifelong friends that become like family from all over the state starting from your first experiences in 4-H all the way to the last years. He states "Wow, they truly have molded and shaped me. I have gained a lot of respect for the people that took time to assist me, teach me how to groom my animals, encourage me, and were always on the side lines cheering me on. And we had a lot of fun along the way!"
