Photo: Ram Judging, Eastern States Exposition (The Big E)

Crossing paths with a gorgeous ram and his handler heading to the judging area influenced me to settle down on the bleachers to watch. Chatting with the people nearby, I notice how attentively they studied the program. Their replies to my questions showed they knew a lot about rams.

I asked, “Do you raise rams?” Everyone replied “Yes”. I was probably the only one amongst the spectators who did not. These weren't the typical fair goers eating fried dough, queuing up for fairway rides or watching live infomercials. Their mission was to research the possible purchase of breeding stock.

Choosing to be with the rams and engaging with the Farmers gifted me an authentic, new adventure.
