Woolfest - Part One










Just photos of the animals today. Whilst I enjoyed my first visit to Woolfest I have to say that I felt so sorry for the poor animals. It was far too hot and a lot of the sheep were panting. The alpaca's faired better as they had been shorn as you can see from the photos. I didn't write down any names of the brands of the sheep but if you click on my blog title it should take you to Eadaoin's photos and she was far more efficient than I was and gave most of the sheep labels.

I didn't take many photos of the stalls and the ones that I did take I will post tomorrow with more details of the show. Ambermoggie may have some photos of the stalls on her blog today or tomorrow and as Ambermoggie and Mr Mog had the advantage of taking the photos before the show opened and before anything was sold I am sure that their photos will be great and a lot more viewable than mine. Keep an eye out for her blog posts.

For now I am recovering from am extremely hot and tiring day and sorry to say it about the sheep and alpacas but you did smell dreadful!

It was brilliant to meet up with you again Jan and with Deb for the first time. I love, love love my gifts. I've worn the circle jacket already and have the beads ready to finish the wonderful top. I feel so blessed with my friends thank you again:)))

Those alpacas look funny without their fibre! lol
I saw sheep up close for the 1st time yesterday and I was freaked out! They're kinda scary up close! Their bleating kept on making me jump too. I think I was more fascinated in them then the boys were. :-)
