What was special or interesting about your lamb?
My lamb name Stevie was bred by Bline when I tell people that they think he is blind.
What was your favorite sheep in your barn this year?
Probably scooby. He is just very laid back and I could go in the pen and lay with him.
How would you describe the moment you were selected as champion?

Just my dad saying good luck or even my mom telling me to go out there and do what I love to do and be me.
