Jamie's Visit

On Friday Jamie and I visited Kathy's farm in southern Lancaster county. It was wonderful in that Jamie was interested in Kathy's art and studio, and I was excited to see the new critters. Here are the dog, sheep, and goslings at Kathy's:













Even though it rained, we had a great visit. Jamie left envious of Kathy's farm. I know Jamie has often wanted to have a farm and sheep. =:O)

On Sunday we went to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. Sensory overload! So many things to see and touch. We bought yarn for projects and patterns for future projects. We watched the parade of breeds which had a funny incident. One of the breeds shown had a ram, ewe, and lamb come into the ring. The ram and ewe were on leads, but the lamb was just following mama around the ring. Well, they had to stand there for about 15 minutes until the other breeds were brought in. This was too much for a baby lamb to endure, just standing quietly. I now understand the word "gambol" as it was leaping, kicking, and running around the ring in the most charming way. It was the comic relief for the the show, and the crowd loved it. At one point the lamb noticed the lovely flowers at the end of the ring and stopped to munch. What a hoot!
