homesteading inspiration: sheep + wool festival
My favorite event of the year is the New York State Sheep and Wool Festival, which is now a mere two miles from my home since I moved to upstate New York. But it still takes close to an hour to get there due to traffic that compares to the World Cup Finals, because people travel far and wide to check out the greatest sheep show on earth. And this year delivered again. I came away with more inspiration and ideas to get me through another long cabin-feverish winter and enough animal cuteness to last until I bring home my own. I mean, who can say no to those adorable sheepy eyes and droopy ears? Not I!
