Cute Animals at Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival (OFFF)

Last week my family and I went on a mini-adventure .... we travelled to the Oregon Flock & Fiber Festival! It's a 3 day festival with livestock, food, fleece, yarn, classes, demonstrations .... basically everything related to the animal fiber industry.

We went Sunday morning and it was just *pouring* rain. I felt so bad for all those vendors out there in the rain, with few customers, watching all their merchandise get damp. We didn't stay long because of the bad weather, but still had a great time exploring and looking at everything. The kids *loved* spending time in the barn looking at all the goats, sheep, alpacas and llamas. Just look at this cutie!:

There were so many different breeds of sheep and goats. I got to see Cashmere goats .. where cashmere wool comes from! And then there were these fellows: Look closely, each animal has 4 horns! Two that go up and two that curl down. Really prehistoric looking. I don't remember what they were, but they were definitely interesting.
