It was so soft that is just made you go, awwwww.
A Shetland ram is supposed to be in the 100-125 lb. range, and I saw rams that won and exceeded that size easily. I'm not a complainer by any means, but this seemed to be a huge mistake....or at least I'm hoping it was simply due to lack of education regarding our breed standard.
All in all, I had a wonderful time, sheep people are some of the nicest folks I know, and I was not disappointed in the least. I learned a lot from some very knowledgeable folks and, as usual, I learned some new things and was made a bit better for the education I received. Thanks to everyone that took time and volunteered so that folks like me could enjoy, and educate ourselves.
