A cluster of kids huddled Friday afternoon around a heat lamp in the Pictures with the
Baby Animals booth. They were, of course, baby goats, and four of them were as close to the lamp as their number would allow.
Shawn Morrison, who was running the Picture on the Pony booth on the other side of the entryway in the Fort Worth Stock Show’s sheep barn, said the temperature in her booth was 32 degrees. Ironically, the outside temperature was 38 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.
“Yesterday it was really hard to stay warm,” said Morrison, of LBR Ranch in North Richland Hills. “It’s a little warmer today because the sun came out.”
It should be even easier to stay warm Saturday and Sunday, as the weather service predicted highs of 68 and 72, respectively. – Terry Evans
