How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
The Sheepshearing Festival was really enjoyable--the best part for me was the herding demonstration--absolutely fascinating--who knew that the dogs control the sheep with their eyes, not by nipping at their heels! The crafts and food vendors were nice too, though I thought some of the food was more expensive than it could have been--my grandson paid about $4 for a small cup of ices. The main complaint I have as an elderly person is that there was virtually nowhere to sit down, and we older people do get tired, you know. Benches scattered around would have been appreciated.
