champion blanket

Amy asked to see the fancy-dancy embroidered show blanket that Lambykins won on Wednesday:

Once it's unfolded, though, you can see that she has a little growing to do. In fact, her little body is about half as long as the blanket, and her little legs won't keep the sides off the ground.

Truthfully, she will never fit in it. It is made for a more traditional show sheep, such as a Romney or Hampshire, and her genetics just don't run to that kind of size. Thank goodness! But it also means that her size of sheep can rarely beat the bigger ones in a show ring. Most sheep judges tend to pick the biggest sheep in the ring, and it is a wise bet when ordering a supreme champion blanket to get a large one.

We will have to do some creative tailoring so her showmen can parade her around it in though.


  1. What great photos. Lambykins and the boys are good sports!

  2. WOW - that is a nice prize! (Too bad it creates another project for you.) Congrats to all!

  3. Congrats to Terzo...what a prize-winning smile...and to his little ewe, too!
