For the Great Lakes ~ Bluefaced Leicester Show 2009, our judge was allowed to choose a special placement award called the "Judge's Choice Award". He was to choose an appropriate topic for what he felt was the most deserving category for the entries of the day.
Our guest UK judge: Mr. John Stott, choose to make it the "Young Handlers Award" to recognize the young youth who did such a great job exhibiting their Bluefaced Leicesters. The two youngest handlers of the day, Blake & Tyler Johnson 'River Winds Farm', exhibited excellent showmanship skills with their respective entries, and the time they had spent training their sheep really showed. 5th Place
