Funny Looking Sheep!

Michael Asks "Is That A Lamb Or A Giraffe?"
This little future farmer seems to be thinking, "Hey that's a funny looking sheep!" ........
Wild Rose Farm has a few more photos from the St. Mary's County Fair.  If you go to fairs and shows aroung the country, you're bound to see different breeds of livestock.  This fair had Romney sheep among the Suffolks, Dorsets, & Hampshires.

The Babydoll  Southdowns are always popular with the crowd.  Because of their short stature, some flocks are used as a "green" method to mow the grass in vineyards.

We also watched the 4-H Steer judging show.  The judge did a good job sifting through the breeds and then we see him here comparing 2 steers in the final competition for Reserve Grand Champion of the show.

 In the end, the Hereford steer is chosen as the Reserve Grand Champion and another 4-H season is in the record books!  It was also the last fair of the season for Wild Rose Farm ......  :(
