This past weekend, AZ was well represented at the Lincoln Longwool show at The Big Exposition ("The Big E") in Springfield, Massachusetts. This fair is held for three weeks every September. Two actives from the Cornell Chapter went to show sheep this past weekend. Sister, Emmaline Long shows Lincoln Longwool sheep, a heritage wool breed and Chancellor Carly Neumann went to learn how to show. Several alumni who also show this breed were there showing including Richard Long, NC State, and Debbie Vanderwende, University of Delaware. Debbie Vanderwende did very well in the show, winning "Best Fleece" for both the white and natural colored divisions. It is always fun to see how AZ alumni show up everywhere!
