Bullwinkle wasn't the only lamb in the livestock tent this year. Madeline Norman from Ballyhoo Fiber Emporium brought a 2 1/2 weeks old Shetland/Icelandic cross that completely stole the show. His own show as far as he was concerned ;-). What a pistol!
He was, at most, 10" tall and could jump out of pretty much any pen she built for him and then would run around
shopping shoplifting and he has no idea how close he got to being shoplifted himself....except he wouldn't have stayed in my pen either ;-D.
Bullwinkle, on the other hand, was pretty much there because he had to be there.
"Okay, this tag goes with this bag."
"And I think this basket needs to move over a bit."
"Okay, everything looks good. Can we go home now?" Yes, he's standing on Reg's chair.
"Why would anyone want to go home? This place rocks!"
"Hmm, these Hug a Sheep stickers don't look anything like me!"
"Why, yes, I AM the cutest lamb here. Thanks for coming to my party!"
"I don't really think I like parties."
"Yikes! 20 wasn't kidding when he said all the kids want to stick their fingers up your nose!"
"I'm okay as long as my mom is holding me."
Okay, one last shot of Seuss. He IS pretty stinkin' cute...
But not as cute as 20!
The best part of festivals is getting to visit with friends. For anyone who doesn't know 20's story, that's his real mom! While he enjoys living in Kentucky, he was sure happy to see Debbie (and Aunt Jenny :-D) and catch up on all the news from Georgia (and Canada!).
Debbie and Jenny were here competing at the Bluegrass Classic Stockdog Trial. If you didn't go down and watch the dogs for a bit, you really missed out! The Bluegrass is one of the big trials leading up to the National Finals and the competition is fierce and exciting to watch.
Back in 2010 Serta was a sponsor of the National Finals and the top placing competitors won these huge Serta sheep. 20 is...wait for it...sheep number 20 ;-). His sweater covers up his number, a big 20 on his side. Debbie and her fabulous dog Huck gifted him to me...and the rest is history :-).

So, let's have a little fun and just for fun! Who was the cutest lamb in the livestock tent this year? Leave a comment with your vote (or votes ;-) and on Saturday we'll let 20 draw for some prizes.
Thanks Miss B, for all the funny Bullwinkle pictures! He just looks grumpy...mostly ;-).
