It’s been a long journey from Southern Regionals to Quarter Horse Congress to Eastern Nationals. While he didn’t place today, we are so proud of the dedication and work Brady put into his speech. He delivered a near flawless presentation but the cards just weren’t in his favor. Nevertheless, he represented Marion County and Tennessee well!


Blaine Fuller was initiated as a 4-H All Star today! We are so proud!
