The Country Lifestyle Experience is the show that we participated in over the weekend. We had a vendor booth, plus we took some of our Jacobs to be in the animal showcase. This was the first year for this event and it was small this year, but they have big plans. There were some wonderful seminars and I met some really nice people.
Little Lucky couldn’t believe all of the stuff that he saw – Alpacas, cows, hair sheep, goats, and lots of people.
Reno and Rendezvous took it all in stride.
Infiniti and Bronwen weren’t happy with the people that were trying to pet them. We had to laugh when we showed up Thursday night because the pens were 12′ x 12′, we only had 2 sheep to put in each pen! They had a lot of room. Most pens at shows are 4 – 6 feet square.
This was the first show that I used my new (used) gridwall panels and they were awesome! I was able to hang and stack and utilize all of the space. They worked really well.
Here are a few tote bags that I embellished that are still available and can be found in my etsy store.
I had fun swapping items with other vendors and I came home with some beautiful, handmade cards and a very soft alpaca fleece.
My husband did a fantastic job manning the sheep pens and demonstrating how the drum carder works.
He also participated in the Country Olympics and my sister got these pictures of him moving grain bags in one of the events.
The object was to move the stack of grain bags from one pallet to another. He won by a second! Right afterwards he realized that he isn’t as young as he used to be 🙂
