Success in the show ring is not easy to achieve. The blue ribbons do not always not always go to the animals which the owner knows to be good, and a little thought will show us why. In the first place,the owners opinion of a beast is formed over a long period, probably since the animal was born. He knows all about its disposition and its performance on the home farm; how delightful it looked last spring and so forth. The judge who allots the prizes does so on opinions formed during the brief period that the animals are under his scrutiny in the judging ring.
