Field Days vignette: Showing sheep takes a lot of commitment

Posted on August 11, 2014 |
By John S. McCright



After the sheep judging was done for the day Thursday evening and the sheep tents were relatively quiet, a big, white ewe bleated plaintively in one corner. A young man in a pink shirt and madras shorts was manhandling her into a frame that would hold her head erect and her body still so he could give her a trim.

Jarrod Ashley of Whiting was primping a female named Clarice to get her ready to compete in the natural color ewe judging the next morning.

Although he usually has more deliveries to make, he said he always calls the office or somewhere to have someone alert the homeowners.

“I’ve been a renter and a homeowner myself, and I’d hope someone would call me if they saw something wrong at my home,” Blair said. “It’s like a neighborhood watch.”
