|First-place photos and roving from Laura|
|Garrett, not the ram; I have plenty of rams already, thankeweverymuch!|
And what didn't follow me home from OFFF:
|Bloom, ready to head north to her new home|
This morning we looked at every single member of my flock, discussing fleeces, colors and other characteristics. It's amazing how much better my fleece shots turn out with an extra set of (big) hands. :-) Below is yummy Bittersweet, twin wethered brother of the sweet little Bloom above:
And below are two shots of my handsome homebred smooth-polled ram Blake, who, interestingly enough, has gotten darker since his spring shearing, when his fleece was nearly white.
I also have to show what came in the mail on Saturday:
I submitted a photo to the Midwest Shetland Sheep Breeders Association show's photo contest this summer, and it won its division and placed third overall. Besides the cute sheepy barnwood frame, I got $25!
That's it for my "sheep" showing this year, from . . .
