My son and I attended Woolapalooza today, Drumlin Farm’s celebration of all things pertaining to sheep. We saw one man working hard with the shears to remove the wool of many sheep quickly and skillfully. It was surprise that there wasn’t a team of people using electric shearing tools, but he got the job done (although we did see one sheep in the meadow with a big boo-boo from the shears). We were also impressed by the sheepdog demonstrations as a border collie expertly herded a small flock around the pasture. This made an impression since we recently watched Babe. The only pig at the farm was a large, pregnant sow named Hattie sleeping in the pig shed. There were many pregnant ewes as well as new-born lambs and kids. It was a fun day and made for some good photographs.
