Nothing sheepish about Harvest Celebration

Payton Sullivan, 5, pets a sheep at the Harvest
Celebration at Prairie Loft Sunday afternoon.

As Michael Littlefield deftly rolled Goose side-to-side shearing her dark brown coat, Goose, an 8-year-old Suffolk ewe, didn’t make a sound.

“You’ll notice this sheep isn’t making a noise at all; it’s just the ones inside the pen that are doing all the squawking,” he said to a crowd of more than 50 people watching his shearing demonstration.

Representing the Nebraska Sheep and Goat Producers, Littlefield participated in the Prairie Loft Center for Outdoor and Agricultural Learning’s sixth-annual Harvest Celebration Sunday afternoon.
