PCKHSA May Event at Kenagys...


Nearly 40 individuals from California, Oregon, Washington and Idaho attended the day for the Katahdin Hair Sheep Event with special guest Jim Morgan, KHSI Operations Manager.

We had a great group for the May 2008 Katahdin Event at the Kenagy's.

Jim conducted hair coat inspection training, followed by an inspection test. Everyone was invited to participate in the test, however only KHSI members in good standing were qualified to become inspectors.

The Kenagy’s provided a 2008 ram lamb for a raffle, with the winner being our new members Bill and Susan Orr from Eagle Point.

It was a great opportunity to meet members both those who have been in the organization for several years, plus some new members. Several families joined our organization during the event.

The cost was very reasonable, with lunch and snacks served, and we owe a HUGE thank you to Karen for her hard work, the location and the donated ram. Another HUGE thank you goes to Debra Blake who helped with organization as well as planning and providing the great food.

The PCKHSA organization hopes to have several events a year, at a variety of locations, making it easier for all members to attend some functions.
