What was special or interesting about your lamb?
He was definitely the most challenging lamb I’ve had. He had a mind of his own. He only liked being fed and he loved drench.

What was your favorite sheep in your barn this year?
My lamb Lazarus was by far my favorite this year in the barn, but he still stands second to Theo, who was my Grand Champion Market Lamb at The Virginia State Fair last year.

How would you describe the moment you were selected as champion?
It was very rewarding. I felt like my hard work paid off. This year was challenging.

Favorite thing to hear on showday?

“Wipe that smile off your face we’re here to win, not to have fun.” Will Strecker
