The shepherds and the lambs were all dolled up Wednesday for the Shepherd Leading Contest at the Ag Expo.
The exhibitors must wear an outfit of at least 60 percent wool, prepare a narration about themselves and the lamb and they can add accessories for the lamb.
The competition was divided into 4-H and open classes. There were five competitors in the 4-H's intermediate and senior divisions.
The open class consisted of the five 4-H competitors and two new entries. Garrett Hamby, 7, was the only boy to enter, but he said that didn't bother him a bit.
Hamby was dressed in a 100 percent wool cowboy hat and sweater with a wool tie and linen shorts. His lamb, Wendy, also wore a 100 percent wool tie. "She's a businessman," he said.
