So we took off Thursday after work to go to the Black Sheep Gathering in Eugene. We had a gourmet meal from Taco Time in Marysville on the way down and made it to Salem by 11PM. We got up early Friday morning and made it to the Gathering just in time for the Shetland show. Above is a photo of the Shetland rams all lined up and being judged.
Here are all the ram lambs lined up- quite a few!
Then pair of ewe lambs- you can see on the left some of the lambs weren't very cooperative with the idea.
Three gatmoget butts!
Then Saturday morning I arrived before 9:00 for the Shetland fleece judging. Here John (and Tina) Parks won the first place ribbon for yearling and lamb Shetland fleeces with the gorgeous fleece from Luna.
