Bluefaced Photographic History Tour

During my recent visit with Glenn Shapiro at her Hazelwood Farm, I took the opportunity to take a few photographs of the Bluefaced Leicester photo collections that were throughout the house. These represent some of Hazelwood's finest Leicesters from the past and present.

Lanark ~ Best Western

Like my son said, this has to be one of the coolest looking 'Best Western' hotels, when he saw these photos of one of the hotels I stayed at during my recent UK trip.
The inside views didn't disappoint me either.

The sheep superintendent at the WSWF just sent me this photo that was taken of 'EdenVale'

Reserve Supreme Champion Ewe for the WSWF 2009.
