There’s the smell of fresh dirt in the air in the “brand, spankin’ new” show barn currently being completed at Yorktown ISD. Freshly raked brown dirt covers the new cement foundation concealed underneath. Bleacher seats are lined up, ready and waiting on the sidelines, while the new, shiny aluminum gates almost beg to be opened at the end of the corral.
