Responding to the challenge over at this blog:
Judging at the Lambs Down Festival, Carleton Place, Ontario
Dressed for this morning’s cool weather
by noon I was feeling the heat
at the annual sheep-shearing festival
here in town, just down the street.
There were sheepdogs herding the bleaters
and big dogs just out for a stroll.
We held a youth art competition
with everything under control.
There were prizes for all of the kiddies
and lamb burgers, waffles and fries.
There were buyers and sellers and two fortune tellers
and a big fella selling pink ties.
