Margaret River Day 5 – Part 2 Shearing Shed & Wonky Windmill Farm

After Country Life Farm we went to Shearing Shed to catch the live show. We arrived late and missed seeing the shearing of the sheep, sheepdogs in action mustering and working the sheep and bottle feeding the baby lambs. Show times are only at 11:00 am and we arrived ten minutes after.

Even if we missed the show the owners of the store gave P a bag of food to feed the sheep.

More animals please. Our next stop was Wonky Windmill Farm. We didn’t know what to expect since we just saw this on a brochure and decided to go there at the last minute since it was near the Shearing Shed.

Only Rochelle and her son P went on this animal petting expedition. After paying the fee they were given a small bag of food for the animals. It was a tiny paper bag filled with some veggies. It wasn’t enough unlike the pails of carrots we were given at Country Life Farm.
Chris and I stayed in the store and tried out the jams, olive oils, vinegars and dukkah.

Rochelle said there were more kinds of animals here and the place was more organized. But the animals were more shy of humans. Maybe because this place was new.
