During judging, the handlers led their animals past the judges. When standing still, they continually scratched the bellies of the animals with a prod. This prod looked something like a golf club and the scratching keeps them quiet. The prod has a pointy tip to prod the feet of the animals to make them stand "correctly" for judging. The scratchy bit is a curved prong and some prods have a brush as well!
Paint to one sketch was added soon after the judging finished when I found a chair to sit on in the food truck area.
