The weekend of June 8th and 9th we attended the Estes Park Wool Market in Estes Park, Colorado.  Each year a breed is selected to have their National Show at this event.  This year they hosted the National Shetland Show.  There were Shetland breeders from all over the country and the classes were some of the largest we have ever participated in.  Being a small breeder with less experience than many of the exhibitors there we were not expecting to win anything.  We were pleasantly surprised and very proud of our Spring Ram, O’Doul, who placed 2nd in the Spring Ram Lamb Class.
