Garden State Sheep and Wool

This was a couple weeks ago, but I'm way behind and getting caught up with everything going on. The Garden State Sheep Breeders put on an annual sheep and wool festival. It's very small, nothing fancy, and mostly livestock. There is a fleece auction, but it was unimpressive- there were a lot of mediocre and very dirty fleeces. The few that were outstanding were being shown only and weren't for sale. Boo hoo.

There were pretty angora rabbits though:

Most of them were so tame and they really enjoyed the attention.

This one was all glug glug glug glug.

They had sheep shearing

and lots of sheep being shown and paraded around. Alas, Rhinebeck is right around the corner. I had a fun day, but went home empty handed- nothing grabbed my attention enough to take home.
