Last weekend husband and I went to a local farming show. It was a lovely autumn day and the animals were looking at their best. Pigs and piglets brushed and polished, the heavy horses with tails plaited and manes bright with ribbon. The sheep fluffed up, long ringlets curled like Victorian girls, everyone so proud of their poultry and stock. The gymkhana was in full swing. Little moppets clinging on tightly to the saddles of their ponies as, with huge aplomb and steely determination they charged around the jump course. Charlotte on Cobweb got a clear round and were very pleased, extra polo mints for Cobweb tonight I should think.
At the dog
agility course enthusiasm was everything. Dogs of all shapes flung
themselves around the obstacles, tails waving madly. The wrong way
through the tunnel, halfway up the ramp, miss out the difficult weaving
rods, who cares, we're all having fun! Some people dressed up for the
occasion, taking account of the threat of rain. It is important to feel a
cold wind won't spoil the day for you........ so Betty chose her outfit
with great care....
