We went to the Wisconsin Sheep and Wool Festival last weekend. It was a first time thing for both of us. I have never showed a live animal before and don't know if I will again. But.....it was a good experience since the two sheep that I showed placed in their classes. We also took along nine lambs that are for sale. We only sold three, but that is better than none.
This is the parade with the ewe lambs. Wild Thing was very well behaved through all of the walking around. She just got antsy while waiting for the judge to get to examine her and after that while waiting for the winners to be chosen. The judge had a real hard time choosing the last winner, and he came back to Wild Thing twice to check her wool. I guess he liked it because we got the call and the ribbon.
