Hey @Rosemary, can you check your formatting please?

And the link too, I got "something went wrong"
Don't listen to the money men - they know the price of everything and the value of nothing

All working perfectly now.  Will log in and watch on the day

Really looking forward to our Smallholding Festival on 24th October - and all our friends from out with the Falkirk area will be able to take part and watch the talks and demos
Always have been, always will be, a WYSIWYG - black is black, white is white - no grey in my life! But I'm mellowing in my old age

Sadly my shetlands are currently too fat to show....... grass been growing like stink last 2 months and cows not pregnant so even strip grazing is failing to slow the weight gain .......    they really do grow on nothing!

Don't wrestle with pigs, they will love it and you will just get all muddy.

Let go of who you are and become who you are meant to be.

Sorry, no excuse. It's called "being in show condition". Mine are fat too but I'm still entering.

Don't know how many Shetland cattle keepers are on here, but come on guys, get registered as an exhibitor and take part! Folk have put in a lot of work to get this of the ground - if it goes well, it could become an annual event, which would be great for breeders and the breed. :cow: :trophy: :cow: :fc:
