I just noticed that in my previous post I said that Saturday finished with the Spinner’s Lead…that should have said ‘Friday’. We were all confused on what day it was for most of the trip, so I’m not surprised that I wrote the wrong day.
Saturday started with breakfast and great conversation. The thing I look forward to most about attending the AGM is seeing old friends and meeting new ones. This year didn’t disappoint…I just wish we had more time to visit!
The Junior show followed breakfast and was well entered.
Our son helped show sheep…
as well as showed his ram lamb that he brought to trade for a ewe lamb from Royal Unzicker.
After the Junior show was the Open show.
It is always fun to see Jacobs from across the country in person.
Buying new sheep is always fun, but I went with the resolve that I was only coming home with the sheep that I had prearranged.
This girl REALLY tried to change my mind :) Luckily, my friend Joan bought her!
Which is more fun anyways, because now we have matching sheep
Saturday afternoon was filled with workshops and presentations. I really enjoyed them, but after several days of late nights and early mornings, our son needed a little bit of down time, so Tony took him back to the hotel for some time in the pool. They found a prairie dog colony, of course we had to stop and take pictures when we drove by later.
Little mounds everywhere!!!
They are so cute, but I am thankful we don’t have them here!
I wish I had taken a moment to take a picture of Saturday night’s dinner – it was DELICIOUS!!! Brian and Jennifer Tucker did a great job of hosting this year’s AGM and deserve a round of applause. I know what a tough task it is!
Sunday morning started early and consisted of loading up different sheep to be brought back with us and saying ‘good-byes’. We got back in the truck and thought to ourselves, ‘wow…that was a LOT of driving for one day of fun!’ How nice it would have been to click our heels together and be whisked home…but I wouldn’t have been able to take the photos I did on the way home, so I guess the drive was good. Those photos will be in my next blogpost.
