We began by rushing to the sheep dog demonstration. We arrived just in time despite the outrageously long line of traffic waiting to enter. Have you ever seen these highly trained border collies herd sheep? How about ducks? It is very impressive! At the end of the demonstration the men let the dogs know that they were done working and it was now okay to play. They ran around the rink chasing Frisbees and balls without giving the sheep a second glance. Two of the dogs even jumped up into the arms of the men looking for a little playful affection. It seems they have a good life.
Next, we made our way over to the farm animals. My Honey bought a new camera this year, so on Saturday, he started teaching me how to use his old one. He adjusted the settings for me, then I started snapping away (in between ooh-ing and ahh-ing and petting the friendly ones). I think I took approximately 70 pictures which resulted in four that I really like. What is that, 6%? I guess I need to practice!
By the time we saw all of the animals and enjoyed delicious hand-cut french fries and lemonade, it was time to leave! There were myriads of fiber vendors that I would have loved to see. Next year, I think we'll plan to arrive first thing in the morning to allow time for that. Still, it was a great day.
