Saturday was a super busy day for us, we headed out for the first Smokey Mtn Fiber Festival and we had a really nice day (with no rain for a change!). It was in Townsend, which is the "sleepy side" entrance to The Great Smokey Mountains. (The other side is Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg with a bazillion and a half tourists).
There was a lot to see and do. I didn't attend any classes but may consider it next time. I missed the sheep shearing too. For leaving our house so early we were really rushed while we were there!
This was so much fun to see, aren't these guys cute?
I don't know if you can see Rick ready to spring into action here behind his owner. He's trained by a certain whistle and he knows when to chase, go right, go left, cut them off, etc. by the whistle. He was awesome and he's actually almost blind because of an accident he had. All this couple's dogs are rescued dogs too. The way they talk about their animals (and they have a LOT), you know they really care about each and every one.
