We also had winners in the Futurity

Well, suprised as Marieke was....

She was looking at the fleeces at the Futurityshow and saw our own animals (just the fleeces) in the competition. Also Eboli (see former article on this blog) won a price. Never saw her, never saw her fleece. We bought her a year ago... So Marieke brought a little bit of all the fleeces for me to Holland. Not disappointing. But she is grey and not black!!!
