Whew! What a weekend.
The Great Lakes ~ Bluefaced Leicester Show was a great success.
I have to thank John & Christine Stott for coming to Wisconsin, and for being such warm and charming guests. I know everyone was delighted to meet them, and to get the chance to chat with them and learn more from John about Bluefaced Leicesters, as well as Mules, and farming in the UK.
I would also like to thank all those who stepped in and offered their help before, during, and after the shows, and with the evenings "Meet the Stott's reception".
I could not have managed without their help. Everything was so well done!
We arrived home around 12:30 AM, unloaded about 1/2 the sheep into temporary pens set up in the yard, fed & watered them all, pulled the truck up to the house and crawled in for a few hours of shut eye before beginning today.
I will get the results of the shows posted later this week, after I unload the truck and locate them. I did upload a few pixs that Mark managed to take at the end of the day on Sunday, and more photos will follow as they arrive in from the other exhibitors.
I hope all who came to Wisconsin enjoyed themselves, and that everyone had a safe journey home.

Many thanks to Betty Shetterly, the show superintendent, for taking this group photo of us in the ring at Michigan Fiber Festival.
(and thanks to those willing & unsuspecting folks who end up helping us hold and show sheep)
