Wool Growers Restaurant - Capona Logo

The Capona is a name given to the male sheep that leads the flock. In many ways Wool Growers is a leader in its community.

The sheep featured in our logo was taken from a 1957 (date?) photo. This Capona sheep is the leading sheep of the flock and as such is the most intelligent one in the group. On a particular day, the sheepherder took off his hat and placed it on this sheep’s head. To the surprise and delight of everyone, the sheep kept the hat on all day. And if you find that hard to believe, take a look at the picture that proves it.

Mayie Maitia, the founder of the Wool Growers, is a community leader and an inductee to the Basque Hall of Fame.
