Gila fair provides life lesson on the hoof for 4-H members

Chris Smith stands in the back of the 4-H arena at the Northern Gila County Fair Friday while the hogs circle around the show pen, rooting in the wood shavings. The huge animals throw dust in the air with their snouts and squeal at each other before starting fights. Handlers pull them apart by tugging at their halters. Smith, a man with lively brown eyes and a slight drawl, doesn’t look like a rancher.
