Rockton Fair

This post is a little late, but I am just back from Rhinebeck. I went with a few friends and we had a great time and ran into quite a few people we knew from home as well. The Rockton Fair was Thanksgiving weekend and a few of us shetland breeders were down showing off our sheep. Rockton has a shetland show and this time four farms were represented. We are all friends and supportive of each other, and this makes a pleasant time, without anyone being super competative. This year I was honoured to have the champion ewe, reserve champion ram and came second for get of sire. Thanks to everyone who took time on their thanksgiving day Monday to haul sheep to Rockton.
