|Wild Rose Farm - Snow White & Ewes|
Here's a pet peeve of mine. I see these slow moving vehicle reflectors hanging all over the place where they don't belong & folks become oblivious to their safety significance. We spotted this caution at the Big Knob Fair in the antique tractor and steam show area:
Proper Use of Slow Moving Vehicle Signs!

|Wild Rose Farm Ewes In August|
And why are they walking back & forth? We weaned the last 3 ewe lambs from their mothers the evening before this picture was taken. Those 3 ewes keep walking back to the gate to call for their lambs. Occasionally, the rest of the flock follows them. The 3 lambs are in the barn (penned up with the older lambs) and they keep bleating for their mothers. It takes about 2 days for them to settle down on both sides. Then it's peaceful & quiet again ...

After The Show
We wandered around the grounds and spotted the Mercer County Spinners & Weavers Guild set up and doing spinning and weaving demonstrations. Their natural dye workshop sample cards caught my eye & reminded me that it's time to collect goldenrod & walnuts ...
