It was a long drive, but Brien Sheep are home again, not even two flat tires in Northern Ontario could stop us.
A big thank you to all of our buyers and bidders from the sale, to the committee who did a great job organizing and to anyone who stopped by to chat by our pens or around the barn.
The show was a great success for us, topping it off with the Supreme Champion Ewe that came with a shiny new belt buckle!
It is very gratifying to see that our breeding program is accepted by breeders across the country.
