A Few More Festival Pictures

I thought I would share a few more festival pictures today. These handmade baskets were beautiful! Too pricey for me but very, very pretty.

Darling sheep. They had a sheep herding demonstration. The dogs were very well trained.

And a horse pulling competition. Huge horses. 16 pair of them altogether. They had some in a trailer and you could come by and pet them. Julie loved it. There was one pair of mules but they did not pull anything. They hooked them up to the load but the mules just stood there. I’m not sure if it was too heavy for them or if they were just being stubborn.

Believe it or not, we actually had some snow flurries this morning. Our temperature is in the lower 30’s. We have a fire built in the wood stove, with homemade beef stew simmering on it. I am getting ready to make some rolls to go with the stew. It is a snuggle in kind of day. I hope you all have a great day and God bless.

  2. Those horses are beautiful and the baskets too! I wish I knew how to make baskets. Snow flurries already! It certainly does sound like a snuggle in kind of day!

  4. Donna,

    Thank you so much for visiting my blog. This festival looks absolutely wonderful. We live in a small community with many “down home” events (as I like to call them) – our favorite is the tractor parade coming up at Christmas time. I pray you have a glorious day!
    Blessings,
    Michelle
