GREENFIELD — Channing Bearhope has always felt anxious heading into the show arena, but the six-year 4-H’er overcame more than nerves when she returned to the ring this week.
Monday marked the first time Channing, 14, returned to compete since an accident with one of her cows left her hospitalized for a total of 26 days last summer just two weeks before the fair.
Channing vividly remembers June 23, 2011, the day she walked her heifer, Addie, into the family’s barn on South CR 700E in Greenfield. While walking down a narrow aisle way, the heifer knocked the then-85-pound Channing into a metal feeding trough.
