WEST VIRGINIA SHEPHERDS FEDERATION
2013 West Virginia Shepherd’s Memorials
Three outstanding West Virginia Shepherds pasted away this year. They were James (Jim) Dean, who purchased rams every year at the sale, William (Bill) Armentrout, who served on the board and barbecued lamb for our Saturday meal, and a past secretary/treasurer of the West Virginia Purebred Sheep Breeder Association, Linger Arnold. Each was active for many, many years in promoting and improving sheep in West Virginia. Their leadership and contributions led to the success of West Virginia’s Sheep Show and Sale for 64 years. Dr. Jewell Plumley, DVM and owner of Cold Spring Dorset’s initiated three fifty dollar memorial drawings for youth to use as credit toward purchasing breeding sheep. These awards will assist youth in establishing their own start-up flocks, thus encouraging new leadership within our industry.
