Lambs Down

Carleton Place has a one day event every year. Because we have Canada's largest (or is it only?) wool grading station here, the festival makes sense. It is also a bit of a play on words, as Ottawa's stadium is called Lansdowne.

The border collies doing their thing is always an attraction.
The wool grading station is in the background.
Of course, there are all sorts of displays and booths that have nothing to do with wool but much to do with having fun.
Sue likes to look at clothes, whether they be for her or Danica,
This makes her happy
There is always a sheep shearing demonstration, but I will refrain from captioning each photo. You're welcome.

At the end, the children are invited to touch the newly shorn sheep.

And we'll likely see and photograph the very same thing next year.

They had this in Perth, at a festival or other. Being an inner city (Toronto) kid, I'd not seen one!
