Today’s Animal of the Day is the sheep! They may seem like a common animal, but they’re actually fun and have a lot of personality.
Many of the sheep I saw throughout the fair were curious and friendly, and they all offered up their heads for a nice pat! It’s interesting to see how the sheep’s wool feels before a trim, and then again after.
If you go around feeding time, be ready to hearing a lot of “bah-ing” throughout the barn area!
You can also make your way across to the Wool Center. Inside, you’ll find a vast array of dyed wools and products made from that wool. There are hats, scarves, gift baskets, and plenty of yarns to choose from. You can watch them busy at work, spinning the wool right in front of you.
It’s a nice experience to see the cycle, from sheep, to shorn wool, to thread!
