More than 300 pigs were entered in this show, AND....
Overall Grand Champion was won by Abigail Reinick and her Crane-bred pig. This pig was also the Champion Dark Cross. Abby purchased this pig from Crane Show Pigs at the 2012 Winner's Circle Sale in Douglas, Wyoming.

Aaron Hamilton kept up his winning streak at the Little American Royal, with his Crane-bred York gilt. They took home the Reserve Champion York title.
This duo won Champion York honors last weekend at the 2012 NJC Aggies Jackpot Show in Sterling, CO. This York gilt is out of 'Honeymoon' (a Grimm's Gem daughter) and Starbuck.
Aaron later came back in the ring, and won the Lightweight Hamp class with his other Crane-bred pig. This flashy Hamp gilt was overlooked by most farm visitors this Spring, so kudos to the Hamilton family for recognizing that she was a diamond in the making!
Not to be outdone...5-year-old Abi Lemon showed in her first pig show, with 'Maximus', her Crane-bred Hamp barrow. They took 2nd place honors in the Heavyweight Hamp class (Note: this pig is a littermate to Abigail Reinick's Champion Light Cross).
|No photo of Abi showing. But just had to share this snapshot from this Spring. |
