Trip to Agfest

Agfest crowds
This morning my husband and I got up early and travelled up to the Agfest event. This event organised by the Rural Youth Rrganisation of Tasmania is in its 30th year and although originally designed to showcase rural industries, businesses etc it has now grown to now cater for all members of the community with lifestyle exhibits as well. You can buy just about anything from a truck or tractor to an mebroidery machine or heirloom sewn nightdress in the craft arena. I have taken some pics to share with you.

These lovely alpacas were quite oblivious to all the people

Dorper Lambs
 These beautiful little lambs are a variety called dorper and have black heads. The rest of their body is the normal sheep colour.

 These two guide dog puppies in training were having a lovely time. They have such a beautiful temperament. They would have had a over a thousand pats in the last three days.  The lovely dog below did not quite make it as a guide dog so is now the ambassador and visits displays such as this.

 You could buy some large irrigation pipes
 or a swim spa.

There was a large vintage machinery display and they were working

Whimsical display
This is just a small section of the huge carpark which was on grass. Luckily we took a change of shoes to change back into when we got back in to the car.

On the way home we spotted this truck for sale. It was just parked on this overpass with a sign on it.
