One of the coolest things we saw were animals from Work In Progress Farm, which is working farm. After checking out their website, they also have alpacas, pigs, sheep, and mini horses. One of the owners gave a talk while the angora goats were being sheared. Most of the goats were very quiet, but one kept bleating bloody murder as she was sheared by a man named Jeff.
There were lots of alpacas at the fair.
And of course, sheep!
I am not sure what kind of sheep this is, but of course, "Baa, baa black sheep" is going through my head.
There was also some yarn purchases that were made, but I shall post those another day.
It was a very fun day, since Jay knows a lot about different sheep breeds, and which ones spin most easily. It was great to peruse the yarns that were on sale, and like dear Queen Victoria, who, when she was a mere slip of a Princess, vowed to be good, I, too, was good, and didn't buy too much yarn. And everything I got already has a project attached to it. Now, if only I had the time to knit all these projects! Next blog post, pictures of the yarn. I know you can't wait!
