Fair Project Friday
What does an ambitious sheep want? To wool the world!
Eva, Sarah, & Alexa Fleegal have been ‘wooling’ the fair for the three years that they have been involved in the sheep project. Their favorite part of this project is watching them grow and develop from the cute little lambs to the market lambs that are seen at the fair. According to Eva, her lamb, Francisco, is the food hog out of the bunch. Sarah’s lamb, Felipe, is a jumper and can be very rowdy. The tamest and leader of the group is Alexa’s lamb, Ferdinand. Working with animals everyday has taught them all to have patience and understanding. The major difference between the sheep project and other species that they have shown is learning how to take care of their wool, including how and when to shear them along with giving them baths. They went to a fitting and showing clinic which taught them a great deal and made them realize how much they really enjoy the sheep project.
Other projects that they are involved in include dairy, crocheting, photography, and cultural arts. Their parents grew up being involved in 4-H which was a large motivator behind them being involved with the Sunrisers 4-H Club. The girl’s favorite part about the fair is all the fun you get to have with the other exhibitors from all over the county who you only get to see at the fair. Ewe should attend the Green Lake County Fair which runs August 1st - August 4th. The Sheep Show starts prior to the Fair's opening on Wednesday, July 31 at 7 pm. The auction will be on Friday. Come out to support Eva, Sarah, & Alexa. Good luck ladies!
