Latest Fair Fashions

For the past several years, I've been monitoring sheep fashions at the Iowa State Fair. Spandex was popular for a few years but by last year it was all but gone, replaced by bulky canvas hooded suits. These suits were neither comfortable nor stylish for the sheep.

Well, I am delighted to report that spandex has made a comeback for the 2009 Iowa State Fair! Perhaps it has something to do with the somewhat retro fair theme this year, or maybe the sheep realized that these colorful suits are attractive and allow for self-expression.

Whatever the reason, I was happy to see spandex back in the sheep barn. Check out the latest patterns and colors:

Bright colors are all the rage! Gone are the camouflage patterns and flag motifs of the past (and really...how useful is a camouflage sheep suit anyway?). Notice the easy-fit leg holes and back opening which makes it easy for a sheep to discreetly "use the restroom" without having to disrobe. The form-fitting spandex shows off the physique and keeps the wool clean.


Watch for additional reports throughout the fair!

I understand clothes for housepets, but sheep? What will they think of next!

Why does one sheep have on spandex while another sheep in the same pen is "naked"?

Why haven't ***I*** been doing that?!?! It just never in a million years would have occurred to me to monitor sheep fashions! Oh wait a moment, that's right...I can't even keep up with human fashions...

:-) :-) :-) Very cute sheep!
