Trailing of the Sheep Festival 2010

This past weekend was very exciting for Kookaburra. We were invited to participate in the 14th Annual Trailing of the Sheep Festival. So Laurie, co-owner of Kookaburra, along with her mother and sister, packed up and went on a little road trip from Colorado to Idaho.

It was a family fun weekend that celebrated the people, cultures and traditions of sheep ranching in Idaho and the west. Many of beloved customers came out to meet us and experience music, workshops, cooking lessons, knitting classes, photography, paintings, dancing, competitions and more!

We had a great time introducing Kookaburra to new customers and friends. If you weren't able to make it out this year we hope to see you at the next one! But for now, here are some photos from our trip:
