The breed display at the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival. Our thanks to Blueland Farm (MD) for providing the ewe and lamb for the display. The new BFL feather flag is available for BLU members to use in displays at fairs and festivals in your area!
From long time BLU member, Nancy Starkey:
The 2018 Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival is this weekend, and here’s a photo of the yearling Bluefaced Leicester ewes that will be featured in the Working Sheepdog Demonstrations. The sheepdog demos are always well attended, and the crowds there will be able to see how lovely BFLs are when moving around the arena. So, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Bluefaced Leicester Union of North America for once again helping to sponsor our demonstrations. We certainly appreciate the BLU’s support!
You are invited to the
MD Sheep & Wool BBQ
Event for Bluefaced Leicester Sheep Enthusiasts
Saturday at 6:30 PM – 9:30 PM
5955 Old Bohn Rd, Mount Airy, Maryland 21771
We want to host all the BFL breeders that come to the festival for a friendly bbq and hangout. As farmers, we don’t get a lot of opportunity to just relax and hang out, swap stories, and not have to worry about getting home in time for chores.
So feel free to come by when you are able – we won’t be upset if you can’t stay for the whole time, we just want to see your faces!!!! If you need a ride over from the fairgrounds, just let me know; we are just a quick jaunt down I-70.
