Day One - Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival

By the time we got here, traffic was backed up the off-ramp all the way to the interstate, but we finally made it! First priority - visit the sheep barns - Border Leicesters first, of course.

Pictures above are from various barns and farms. Sorry, we neglected to make notes. We visited with Kelly from Spring Breeze Farm to give her an update on Liam and made our way around the barn. Check out this cute little Border Leicester ram lamb from Spirit Hill Farm.

We really enjoy the Sheep Breeds Display barn. Our 'neighbors', Dave Moran and Lori Walls from Crimson Shamrock in Eglon are here with their Wensleydale sheep. Who can resist a face like this...

Next, we are off to a seminar 'Preparing your wool for show and sale'. Good info, learned some things and learned a lot browsing through the wool show - lots and lots and lots of great raw fleeces.
