former PPF lambs hit the fair circuit

Michael Goulet and an assistant made a bit of a splash at the Benton County Fair this week showing Bella and Bliss in the March Lamb division. ¬†This is the first time Babydolls had been exhibited at in that county’s fair. Bella landed a second place award¬†and Bliss came in right behind her in third place. Congratulations to Michael for his showmanship and thanks to his mom, Connie, for the image!

    • You apparently haven’t encountered the damage they inflict. I do not go out in the fields/forests and hunt them there. I only eliminate those that are actually causing serious structual and financial damage. The oppossum, as an example, I let go. The groundhogs that Are undermining the very foundations of my barn and shed – I at least thin their ranks. The raccoons that have eliminated over half of my laying hens and have become used to living IN my barn I also eliminate if I can. The gophers have a penchent for roots of hazels above most other plants – just creating a barrier zone free of them around the plantings I have invested lots of time and other scarce resources in establishing. I submit that balancing the populations of critters where the predators have been artificially reduced by humans is necessary and appropriate. I am making a living on the land not living in la la land.
