Who Does This Look Like?



I couldn't help myself ;-).



We went to the Wisconsin Sheep and Wool Festival over the weekend. What a nice festival! Lots of nice vendors, lots of good classes (that were all filled to capacity), lots of sheep. I had hoped to meet up with Nancy K., but she had to get back to her chickens.

We watched an excellent shearing demonstration and the highlight of the trip was the shearing a standing sheep workshop in the afternoon. Dave Kier did an outstanding teaching job and I learned as much in one hour as I've "figured out" over the last five years. If you ever get a chance to watch and listen to him, do it!

And if you get a chance to make a trip to Wisconsin Sheep and Wool, do that as well.

I TOLD you to come on Saturday!

VERY cute little lamb.
I was happy to see my girls just as much as I was my chickens....

Christine said...

Oh man, I wish I could have gone. I desperately need that workshop.

Alice said...

Did seeing all those sheep up there make you miss Keebler? Too cute! I like the colored banding around the legs. At least it's easy to care for and minds well... just like mine ;-)

That's just too cute! Keebler's expression captured perfectly.

Rayna said...

OMG where'd you get that lamb! I NEED one...lol

Stasia said...

Well holy smoke, you should have come on up to Eau Claire to visit us and our Jacobs! Dave Kier is our own sheep and goat shearer - he is a true master. Next time, you come and stay, y'hear? (And bring Keebie so I can kidnap him!!!)

what an adorable picture of Keebs. Wisconsin in the fall must be lovely! Glad you learned from the sheep shearing workshop. My yearling icelandic wether needs shearing this fall and this should be a prime coat. I've got help but none of us are experienced :-(

They do kinda look a like!

Awwww! Such a cute stuffed lambie and it does look like Keebler did! I collect stuffed sheep, too, as I can't have a real one. So glad you got a grand weekend out! Are you planning anything for this weekend's spin in public day? I hope to go to Greenberry House in Meadows of Dan, VA

An adorable likeness! Glad you had a nice time in WI. I just bought Farmer Rick a plane ticket so he can get back for a visit with his family. I'd like to go, but someone has to hold down the farm!

I want to squeeze the toy and the real thing. Wish you could have met up with Nancy.

What a doll! I thought maybe you had made it. But you are right, it does look just like Keeb

No way! You were there?! I was there!! All 3 days! I'm so bummed I didn't get to meet you in person. I did the class on spinning Icelandic, and also "playing with plying". We did Sheep 101 all day Friday. Had a great time - we'll go again next year! I might go to Sheep in the City in Wisconsin in February. Love the stuffed lamb - what a likeness!
