La Pine Oregon is a fantastic place to raise you children. There is an endless amount of activities your children can be involved in. All the way from the top of our famous, Mount Bachelor down to all the lakes and rivers that run though our backyards. Our schools offer a great academic program and sports year round.
My daughter Samantha has been involved in 4-H for 4 years and participates in the Equine and Swine programs. The kids go to educational meetings and mounted meets with their horses and take their pigs to practice with the other 4-Hers showmanship. My husband and I take Samantha to as many open horse shows around the area as possible to help prepare her for the Deschutes County Horse Fair. This is the big finally where all the Equine 4-Hers of Deschutes County comes together and participates in being judged and placing in their age groups. For the pigs, it's the big Deschutes County Fair and Expo a weeklong event. Samantha takes her pig and shows off how many hours of training she has put in her swine project. Then on Saturday it's the buyers BBQ and auction, where Sam sells her pig.
The money she earns from her pig, she puts in her bank account and is able to keep showing her horse Pete and buy a baby piglet for the next year.
I want to tell you all the great benefits and all that's offered to our youth even if we are still a smaller town and community. Don't ever let that stop you from buying a home and raising your family here in Beautiful La Pine Oregon.
