I'm Back!

What a trip! We have lots of pictures to share, too many to load here. I have uploaded most of them to Flickr, check em out! I will upload the rest tomorrow or the next day... Only 100megs a day and I have LOTS of pictures :) Beautiful scenery, sheep and the Chicago Field Museum! It was a last minute decision, and we only had about 3 hours, not near enough, but it was wonderful!

It took 4 days to drive out to Wooster Ohio, the show started on Saturday and the Sale was on Sunday. There were lots of vendors (no pictures of them, sorry I was too busy shopping and forgot I had a camera :), lots of sheep and lots of people. We saw a day old cria, the momma was a newbie and wasn't quite sure what to do with the baby so the owners brought her down to make sure the cria nursed.

I bought the ram lamb I went after, as well as a hampshire ewe for Jari's 4-H breeding project this year. Spent way too much money but she is a very nice ewe!

We got home on Friday night, it took an extra night because we dropped sheep in Wyoming and again outside of Salt Lake. Details are too many to go into, it was a good show and a satisfying sale :)

And how many sheep did you buy? LOL!
