We caught up with New Year Nationals Judge, Kolby Burch, to ask him a few questions before he steps “INSIDE THE RING”!
Who has had the biggest impact on your judging career?
My dad, Kelly Burch. He trained me from the time I was in boots and diapers.
If you could describe yourself in one word, what would it be?
What is your dream show to judge and why?
Hawaii State Fair. It looks beautiful there and I’ve never been.
Do you like to fly or drive to shows – and why?
Depends on what is the most efficient. Anything over a 6-7 hour drive a lot times is worth flying.
Tell us about your family!
My wife Micky is the backbone of our operation and son Miles just turned 8 years old.
What job do you currently have/what do your daily duties include?
Full time sheep farmer. We’re early risers so chores are normally wrapped up by around 7 am ish and then we take on a variety of tasks until afternoon chores. Tasks are usually related to animal husbandry, marketing, etc.
What is your biggest fear?
I honestly don’t know. I try not to live with fear.
