Devon County Show

Last week saw Devon County Show for its 3 day event.  This year we decided to go along and were lucky that the weather stayed dry.  The sun didn't show itself either but that was better as it can get unbearable on hot days at these events.

I took a lot of photographs, and have decided to add them all in one post, so be warned!  in fact sit back and enjoy....

The crowds showed up too

 






I reckon there was something for everyone at this show.  Of course, I particularly enjoyed seeing the heavy horses pulling logs




and other 4 legged animals - like Alpaca judging


and Alpaca watching

(although I have to admit, I find their long necks a bit freaky!)

to cattle judging


I missed the Axe team event, but there was so much to see you would actually have to spend 3 days there instead of one I think




we took William with us who enjoyed seeing everything as much as we did


and sneaked a drink when he thought nobody was watching


this next photo is (I think) called a Showmans Wagon, which the lady in the foreground and her husband had completely restored themselves.......(KatieB if you have dropped by, could you correct me if I'm wrong in saying this is a Showmans Wagon).....do take a look everyone at KatieB's blog, our friend is an amazing Decorative Painter - here's her other Website.



 


the detail on this wagon was lovely


and the inside was amazing






and a different type of wagon - this time Shephard Huts made to order


 (very nice, but lacking decoration)


All in all we had a great day out and I hope you
have enjoyed seeing my photos!
