The San Angelo Railway Museum unveiled its own fiberglass, sheep at an 11 a.m. ceremony held on Saturday, June 11, 2022. “SanAngeLoki” is in front of the Railway Museum, 703 S. Chadbourne St.

SAN ANGELO – In the early 1900s, the Santa Fe Railroad and sheep, were historically “connected at the hip.” On Saturday, June 11, 2022, both Railroad, now the Railway Museum and sheep, albeit fiberglass, was brought together at an unveiling ceremony.

The newest addition to the fiberglass sheep family, “SanAngeLoki”’s creator, artist Shaydee Watson, told the attendees what went into her thought process on her meticulous, detailed work.

“There are things in this piece that I wanted to incorporate related to family. Something noticeable was the time, 7:03 which represented the address of the Museum, 703 S. Chadbourne. There are also train tickets on the seats which represented destinations where people would have traveled during the early 1900s from the Santa Fe Railroad to San Angelo. I wanted to incorporate those so families could engage in conversation with their children,” said Watson.

“What is great about today is there are two things that represent our history of San Angelo. The first is the great and historic San Angelo Railroad Depot. And second, sheep represented the sheep and wool industry” said Mayor, Brenda Gunter in her brief remarks.

And if you are “counting sheep”, pun intended, “SanAngeLoki” makes the 112th addition brought into the fiberglass, sheepfold family.
