Lamb Camp At The Fiber Festival - With A Giveaway

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 ;-).

Bullwinkle. Bullwinkle. Bullwinkle. :)

Benita Story said...

Oh, this isn't fair!!! I love Shetlands and he was so tiny!!!

As cute as Bullwinkle is, I have to vote for Suess. (Don't hit me, please) ;)

nelago said...

I spotted Seuss trying to chew on a spinning wheel, so my vote goes to Bullwinkle! (just say no to sheep-on-wheel violence!

Unknown said...

I have to say both are extremely cute....Suess for his cuddle factor and Bullwinkle for the kick back and enjoy watching what he is doing. BOTH!!!

Karen Battersby said...

Bullwinkle. No doubt about it. And it looks like he was a pretty big help too.

thecrazysheeplady said...

I kinda have to vote for Suess too (shhhh ;-) but that's the beauty of being able to vote for more than one :-D.

Lori Skoog said...

This is a fix! I vote for both cause I don't want the other one to cry.....

YarnKettle said...

Seuss because my heart is unable to forgive Bullwinkle for not loving Betsy as much as he should.
Yeah my heart can be tough sometimes. (I love Betsy for all that she tries to be...the best lamb lover.)

Mary Ann said...

Oh, gosh, too hard... May I vote for BOTH!!!????

Jane Horn said...

Bullwinkle, of course! Is there any way someone from Arizona can buy a mug and two notepads and maybe a tote???
Love your blog and your sheepies!

taylynne said...

Bullwinkle! Definitely Bullwinkle :)

chris said...

I have to go with Seuss - he gave my 5 mo old her first snuffle kiss!

Lisa W said...

Bullwinkle and Suess. It's a tie! Bullwinkle listed first here only because of alphabetical order :-)

I think it's a tie

DianeOart said...

I'm Bullwinkle's fan... so I can only vote for him.

Michelle said...

Well of COURSE it's Seuss . . . must be the Shetland in him. ;-) (And I really think you need him at Equinox Farm!)

Jo said...

Bullwinkle is cute and has character. Seuss is pretty cute as well. I loved this post about the festival and I also finally got to find out 20's story. Have a wonderful weekend. Jo

Jean said...

Oh my goodness! Too tough to call - 20, Bullwinkle, and Suess. As they say at the horse show for the 6 and under leadline class - the judges saw the class the same - all are 1st place winners!

Laurie in Maine said...

Bullwinkle is the one my spinner's heart would want to bring home. Best plastic bag/ tag checker, basket nudger, seat saver, mom loving lambie there! (I just read Petunia's blog tags until I found a baby picture. ♥)

LannieK said...

Bullwinkle ~ no doubt! Best little booth organizer around!
(Besides, BW kinda looks like 20 in that second picture with you holding him, big eyes n' all)

thecrazysheeplady said...

Ouch! ;-D

thecrazysheeplady said...

Absolutely! I'll get the farm shop updated ASAP. I'd say this weekend, but who am I kidding... City Boy and Janbaby are coming in tonight :-D.

thecrazysheeplady said...

Yep, that's a win :-D.

thecrazysheeplady said...

I agree!

thecrazysheeplady said...

She was the Gerber baby of lambs wasn't she :-D.

Jessica B said...

Tough choice, so I am going with both Bullwinkle and Suess.

Anonymous said...

Tough choice - sweetness or attitude, think I'll pick both!

Dee

Karen Haggas said...

Tough Decision!!! I am having a hard time choosing because both lambies are too cute! Here goes - I vote for Bullwinkle because he is such an organizer which I do admire as I am not and my fiber room is the proof!

Elaine said...

Just to be really fair and not hurt the feelings of either Seuss or Bullwinkle I'll have to vote for 20. (unless they both can win!!)

Terry and Linda said...

Look at the love on everyone's face! Just wonderful!

I can't pick...how can anyone pick one sweet lamb over another. Sigh!


Linda

thecrazysheeplady said...

Everybody's a winner so it's all good :-D.

janna e said...

I think the only safe vote is one for 20. The babies are too cute to pick between.

Susan said...

Bullwinkle. What great pics!

Ila Dezarn said...

I have to vote for Suess because he helped me break down my booth at the Indiana Fiber and Music Festival! <3

Alice said...

Bullwinkle because he is cute and mans the booth just like his momma!

YarnKettle said...

I had to come up with something for a tie breaker. ; )

Mrs Shoes said...

Seuss is very cute, but Bullwinkle gets my vote because of the freckles on his nose & inside his ears.

Tyche's Minder said...

Very tough call! I have a soft spot for Icelandics who disrespect fences, but who can resist the classic white lambie? I'm going to have to go with 20 as well.
