Yep, that a first place ribbon you see there! I am tickled pink! This is the fleece from my ram, Herman. I weighed 10lbs before skirting! I skirted it extra heavy for show and it weighed in at 6 lbs.
Letty Klein (author of the Shepherd's Rug) was the judge. It was great learning experience! It was my first try at showing and I was a nervous wreck but it went off without a hitch!
If you ever get the chance to watch a fleece competition it is well worth your time. You will be amazed at the information you will soak in.
