Off to the show!
Yesterday SH and I visited Sheepvention for a few hours. It is a sheep show and associated events that is on annually for two days. It is renowned for wet and muddy weather!!! and this year did not disappoint. In the past the schools have all had a day off on the Monday but in the Shire's wisdom they now have Melbourne Cup day!!!! There are sheep on display and for sale, working dogs competing (one of my favorite things to watch), machinery to inspect, an amazing fashion parade of wool garments with a competition for young designers, local food and wine showcased and lots of shopping opportunities. There was even a 'Nundle wool' stand. I think they had a good show as they didn't have a lot of stock left. We enjoyed our annual 'lamb burger' for lunch and met up with lots of people we haven't seen for a long while. A great outing but oh it was nice to get home to the warm!!
