2020 SD Summer Spotlight :: All Photos Posted

It’s no secret that 2020 has been a doozie. Early on, we weren’t sure there would even be a Spotlight show. But luckily, the event has came and gone without a hitch! Our crew worked tirelessly to capture every moment with our cameras … enjoy some of our favorites, and check out all the photos here.

The event was held July 22 – 26, 2020 in Huron, SD at the SD State Fairgrounds.

All goats showed Thursday, July 23rd, including Goat Showmanship.

As per usual, we always have a great time capturing candid images at shows — including ring shots and pictures from around the barns. Here is just a sampling of what we took at the 2020 Spotlight Show.
