Had a lovely time last weekend on Stoer Bay green. The Assynt crofters were holding a fun sheep day event. This was raising funds for MacMillan cancer support. This is such a special support group which helps and supports so many families whos lifes have been or are being struck by this horrible disease.
The event however was fun. Enjoyed having a wee look at all the different sheep on display as well as afew goats and chickens. I must confess, I do not know much about sheep. I do however have a very large soft spot for goats. As a childhood with them, for my parents with 5 children a on tap a steady milk supply and for us children some very loving pets….except for the Billy, who was as tempramental as anything could possibly be. And a great escape artist. Despite drinking goats milk from a young age it was never my favourite. I did however love milking them and escaping into my own world of peace and calm for a brief spell.
Back to Stoer Bay. There was sheep shearing and milking displays. Though I didnt have a shot, it looks much harder than milking a goat!
Inside the big tent there was local wool crafters looming and wool dyeing as well as an amazing raffle and information on all the Assynt crofters, a great read.
So now full of all this information I live in hope to find a raffle prize waiting for me when I go up on Friday.
Well done to everyone involved in organising and running this event.
