Hi,
Is anyone goining to the Smallholder and Growers Festival in Lanark on Saturday?

I shall be taking along my New Forest mare and foal - if all goes to plan and they load, etc, etc (have been practising!) If for some reason they decide they can't possibly get in the box, I will chuck one of my other NF ponies in as a substitute - but everything will be fine I'm sure!!!! :fc:  :hshoe:

I also have 2 of my call ducks entered in the waterfowl show - I have never shown ducks before, so it will be a new experience for me. I hope they do well as I think they're lovely, but of course I'm bias!

Hope to see some of you there - I'll be with the NF ponies, so pop along and say hi!  :horse:

Unfortunately I can't go, but an sending some Large Black piglets for the display stand, and my friend Gilean is taking her Highland pony and doesn't really know anyone else going, so do say hello to her.

Oh you've seen ours then  :innocent:  :roflanim:
We're entering our ducks too and likewise, we've never shown before  :o
The boss (Mrs CGL) is helping @Brucklay show some :sheep: and she's never shown then before either  :excited:
Looking forward to the entire day.

Great day lots to see and do so many different animals to see trade stands, craft stands and talks on a variety of Smallholding interests all with such a friendly atmosphere and so many like minded friends.
