Hope it will a pleasant day for everbody & as interesting as last year when a new breed of tartan sheep was introduced: “Their tartan wool is prized by kilt-makers all over the world, and the whereabouts of the Highland glens where the clan McHaver – who have bred and tended the flocks of tartan sheep for centuries – is a closely guarded secret.

or if you worked them all together you would probably just get a heather.

Loved the sheep. I hung out with a lot of people over the weekend who would also love this sheep. BTW, here's a photo of me at the Colorado Tartan Day festivities.
