After more than a thousand entries, our Leicester Longwool triplets officially have names. As we wrap up another successful Sheep Week, we have chosen our winner and we think you’ll agree with our decision!
From history-inspired suggestions to pop culture references, we received the full gamut of entries. Some of them were so creative, even the triplets’ mama, Belle, couldn’t keep from LOLing when we read them to her.
But in the end, we thought Jamie, Yorkie, and Willie best suited these adorable siblings! All are abbreviated versions of the Historic Triangle: Jamestown, Yorktown, and Williamsburg.
Congratulations, Trish Fowler! You win two Multiday Passes, our Leicester Longwool Sheep Stuffed animal, a book about our Rare Breeds Program, Colonial Williamsburg tote, and Making History travel coffee mug.
We’d like to extend a very special “thank you” to everyone who entered. It was so much fun to get so many different suggestions. Be sure to join us again next year for Sheep Week and don’t forget to subscribe to our blog so you can get all of our fun Colonial Williamsburg interviews, behind-the-scenes looks at our programs and events, and any future contest announcements!
