Hookstown Fair Opening 2012!

Hookstown Fair Merino Rams
Wild Rose Farm has been at the Hookstown Fair this week enjoying the food, exhibits, & 4-H Livestock Shows.  Of course we've run into many of our friends and local farmers.  Maybe we'll see you there tonight at the Beaver County 4-H Stockman's Club 39th Annual Livestock Market Auction! 
Hookstown Fair Oxford Sheep Under Cover!
Some of the sheep in the show pens are covered to keep them clean ..... it makes for an unusual look if you've never seen this before!
Hookstown Fair - Waiting For The Show
Hookstown Fair - Southdown Sheep
Southdown sheep are a smaller framed meat breed.  This breed is required to be shown as "slick shorn" in order to be properly evaluated to breed standards. 
Hookstown Fair - Relaxing 4-H Rabbit!
There seemed to be more 4-H Rabbit Projects this year.  It's certainly a good entry point for young people showing animals and you don't need a lot of space to house these projects.
