Fleece Shows

I entered these fleeces at Hoosier Hills Fiber Show in southern IN.
 First place on a white Coopworth X Shetland, "Henrietta".

 Second clip kid, "Indonesia"/ #613 won first place. (I never showed a mohair fleece before, their aren't too many shows for mohair.)


And Best of Show with...

A silver Corriedale X Shetland lamb fleece, "Iola".

I also showed a couple at Greencastle, IN Fiber Show. 

I won a first place with a white Corriedale X Shetland/BFL,  "Hava". (Hava should also win a prize for having the biggest lamb. He was 15.5# at birth and is close to 80# now!)

I won a second place with a 3/4 Coopworth X 1/4 Shetland lamb, "Idalia"

I have updated my fleece page, finally. Sorry for the wait. This spring has been really late and I've been busy taking care of sheep, lambs, goats and shearing sheep/goats! Now the girls are out on pasture and I have a bit more time.

The Shetland ewes have not been sheared yet as they don't have the "rise" yet, due to the late spring. So their fleeces won't be up for some time still. Everyone else has been sheared and I will post the rest as soon as time permits.
