It’s back! The Idaho Wool Growers Association, Rangeland Resource Commission and the City of Boise are proud to sponsor the 2017 Sheep in the Foothills. This event will be taking place at the Foothills Learning Center in Boise on Saturday, May 13, 2017 from 10:00am to 1:00pm.
This event caters to all ages and has a variety of activities that are both fun and entertaining for
everyone. You will be able to enjoy live music by Gary and Cindy Braun as you eat a delicious lamb lunch. There will be many local artists and exhibitors presenting sheep related crafts for sale. These include sheep pelts, wool crafts, photographs, sheep bath & body products, natural dyed yarn and many other beautiful things.
There will be an area for sheep dog demonstrations where you can watch border collies herd sheep and learn about their training and dedication to work.
There will be a kids section at the event where kids can learn about wool with hands on demonstrations. There will be scavenger hunts for the kids to learn about the sheep industry and the foothills.
