Shearing Festival 2015

Well, the big day is done and we had so much fun! There was a good turnout and our petting zoo seemed to be a big highlight for most of the folks. We had fresh lambs, including both of our triplet sets, and some of our youngest Nubians.

There were lots of fleeces available. The Mesa County Fiberarts Guild members were out in force and bought up a lot of them, but we still have a number available!

People were free to mill around as they chose and observe the shearing:
