Hi Dan
..just been looking at the update of 2011 online show -got me smiling again :)

I LIKE the way we can see the runners up now - it would be nice to keep it all fairly light hearted and fun.

I just enjoyed taking part - Thankyou.

Had another idea. Happy families -livestock with offspring. Got to be worth it for the ooo's and ahhh's. Father in the shot may not be practical though?

Just a few ;) more suggestions Dan...

"other" poultry?     ducks, turkeys, quail, partridges in pear trees?!

 "in a previous life...." to show & describe (briefly!) the reclaimed/recycled stuff we are all so good at

"dirty dog!"

"At work / at rest / at play"

"Show-stoppers"

"Wild life"

"small but perfectly formed" Versus "big and ... beautiful!"

And, having just been outside ... "My mud is muddier than your mud!"  (bet there's lots of pig shots in this one!)

Sounds like a great idea. Like the idea of animal specific groups and general groups. Willing  to pay and donate to charity. Some suggestions for general categories for the individual to interpret as they wish

Farmlife
Early morning
Harvest time
Kitchen Garden
Working on the Land
Country life
Bedtime
Arrival of spring
Winter chores
The farmyard
Work in progress
Sunny days
The simple life
Feeding time
Hard at work
End of the day
Freshly picked
At play
Unusual pair
Friends
Big thanks to Dan for being prepared to organise it all. Lots of hard work I would imagine.  :thumbsup:

Well I am so surprised,I have just noticed my Bertie came 2nd- and one of my piggies came joint third! Thank you all whom voted-very pleased!-

Dan,Hows about when someone has winning livestock,1st,2nd,3rd all have rosettes or something(printed certificate with picture?!) :trophy: -I am so proud of Bertie!! ;D Obviously like you suggest all would pay an entrance fee-great idea that! BTW: Well done to the winners!

It would be nice to enter our chutneys and such,but whom would test them?(Dan would have shelves full of it all  ;D )

I also like the idea of recycled materials used for whatever purpose.
What about bright idea's?! - of items used in our smallholdings?

We're working on something along the rosette lines, will tell more in a week or so, should be ready for the current show results (and will be retro-fitted to the previous shows).  :thumbsup:

ooh, ohh, thought of some more!

"Peas in a pod" - as in livestock who look like twins, even if they're not  (no cheating... Plumseverywhere & my Toggie goats pose just the same!)

"snug as a bug" - probably more snuggly kittens than cattle... but who knows!

"men at work" - all the manly type jobs that take place; building, carrying, bricklaying ... done by whoever, not just the fellas!! ;)

"Rare breeds"  (might have to categorise this down abit?)


Dan, could the rosettes be added to our profiles? like the star (square!) system, under our usernames?

I have seen the dirty dog theme done on the Pointer forum and the results were an impressive collection of mudwumps - well worth doing.  Flying ears and smiling dogs also work pretty well.  Cute lambs in curious places is another though I would be so tempted to steal a friend's photo of an orphan lamb asleep in a dog feeding bowl (I won't I promise).
