Lorna and I paid a visit to Stirling Show on Saturday. The weather was pleasant, so we had icecream and looked at all the exhibits, including the vintage tractors, Clydesdale horses, beef cattle and sheep. There were lots of horse classes, and a few competitors that I knew from my previous livery yard, so it was nice to catch up with them.

I almost bought two rain hats and a deerskin, but the stallholder didn't take either credit or debit cards, which I found a bit bizarre in this day and age.

Cattle and handlers in the ring

The whole thing just whetted my appetite for the Royal Highland in two weeks time! Hope the weather's equally good - or at least dry.

It was fine. Too many little ponies with little riders kick, kick, kicking for my taste though.

This looks like SO MUCH FUN!!!!!!!!! Did you show anything? Our County fair comes up at the end of the month. We love the animals, flowers and rodeo. Can not wait. In July Central Oregon puts on Scottish Highland Games. I have never went but want to. Hey! maybe they would have Marmite, do you think??? Anyway have fun this summer.
