Sheep Yard Opening

We had the grand opening of our new sheep yards yesterday.  The weather was warm but overcast, and we were pleased that many of our friends were able to join us for the occasion.

After a short introduction by myself, our sheep mentor Wally gave a short speech before cutting the ribbon. I then gave a quick demonstration of the sheep going through the race before getting the bbq fired up. On the menu was sausages made from a sheep who had been one of our first lambs born when we moved here.

Also on offer was a selection of cakes and biscuits on the baking table which were very popular. Perhaps the biggest attraction of the day was the ute rides. There were several lap made of the paddocks with some good loads carried. Thank you very much to everyone who was able to make it along, we all had a lovely afternoon. Some people said it was the best sheep yard opening that they had ever been to.
