This year it was the sesquicentennial of our local
one of the oldest continuous shows in the state.
Being a patron, I had to go along, if only to watch my
grandson-in-law win not only the intermediate section speed
shearing but also - would you believe it - the best butt on the board.
At the end of the shearing, all the competitors had to line up and
bend over and he got the vote of the audience.
Just starting off
oops, the last two pictures the computer reversed in order,
Lord knows why
so this is the last cut or two of one of seven sheep to be shorn
and here we are with a lovely white back and the legs being cleaned up.
It seems I was rather biased, I took no other photos of grand parades
or hall exhibits.
The weather was blustery with Scotch mist drifting through and
it got a bit cold for me to hang around any longer.
