Sheep Shows start too.
This is one of our rams that we showed last week at the National Junior Suffolk show. He was second in its class and was Reserve Champion Owened Ram. My cousin showed it. A Suffolk has a black points, meaning the legs and head.
We were in a couple of different contests. One of them was a fitting contest. I got a sheep that just came from a pen and then had to card (kinda like brushing) the wool and trim away some of the wool to give the ewe (girl sheep) the right shape. Its kinda like a beauty school contest only for sheep.
We had fun at the show meeting people from all over the country.
