On Mother’s Day I went to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival with my mother 🙂 . It was a stunningly beautiful day and the place was just a treat with all the sights, smells and sounds of the vendors, musicians, concessions, craftsmen and of course the sheep! My camera battery died prematurely so I have shamelessly borrowed some of my mom’s pics…

The Colors! Dyed wool roving ready to spin.
The Crafts! I fell in love with this sheepy designed ceramic ware. (Photo L. Sawyer)
The Critters! I thought MY lamb had funny ears--this guy looks half rabbit! It is a Border Leicester specially bred from English stock to get those great ears.
The Music! A Celtic group played beautifully.
This is from the Fleece Show and Sale. We dropped off fleeces on Friday and when we checked on Sunday they were all sold. They had about 600 entered for sale and maybe 100 left by the time we got there.

Aren't they cute!
A Shropshire with interesting markings.
Look at that... perfect face, perfect proportions...I guess I am very bonded to Corries!
