Fleece Competition !

This was a pic of some of the fleeces entered in the fleece competition.
This was my first time entering a fleece.  I entered Gwendolyn's fleece in the
double coated division.  Next year I will surely enter a couple of fleeces.
This was quite a learning experience.  I stayed while the judge, judged the fleeces
and it was interesting to hear her comments of the fleeces and what others did wrong.
You can learn alot by just observing what the judge was looking for several
that were close in the placing came down to who had skirted the fleece better.
You would be surprised the number of people who really didn't take the
time to skirt the fleece very well.
