If you are lucky in this life you can live in moments of time where your dreams come true.
Ruth was special from the day she was born, big but not too big for a heifer, then Junior Campion at MD State Fair 8 months pregnant. She calved in October right after mom judged Expo full of potential, athletic, youthful, and not lacking for spunk.
At 2 years she showed just once but afterwards everyone knew her name. For the next 2 years that followed she did her job at home & in the ring and loved every minute of it. She was strong, smart and had personality, she loved her people, her feed bunk and pasture and being stalled with Dare Bear. She milked and bred back and held the title of #1 Genetic Merit Cow at the same time she reigned as Champion. She was small town famous all at the same time, with folks in Hagerstown that knew nothing at all about show cows checking Facebook to see how she performed.
She left us as strong and full of personality as the day she was born. There are those that have that something special that you only know when you see it and Ruth had it to spare. Though we are heart broken we know she is with Bruis Bonnie on top of the hill in green pastures watching over the farm and the family she loved.
