Newsletter - Chips Off The Rock - August 2018

I like sheep.  My father raised Corriedales on our small hobby farm in southern Ohio.  Shortly after Delia & I were married we took care  of a small flock of blackface cross sheep in Iowa.  Lambing, feeding, the smell of hay in the cold of winter, it all felt so agricultural.  I probably should have been a sheep farmer, but other things called in a different direction.

The lamb show was on Tuesday of our county fair.  These pictures give a bit of the flavor of that event.  There were more Rock Run fair participants in other events, but this is the one I attended.  You can see Mick & Logan Moore and Grace Leer (frequent women’s fellowship visitor) showing their lambs.  You also see happy grandparents and a fair-weary mom & brother.
