County Show plus a Horse Show



Last week was Devon County Show (link) again, held over three days in May, and thankfully the weather held out for the most part.   I went along with daughter on

SATURDAY

 and reckon we walked about 7 miles during that day...phew, I was beat.



As you see the clouds built up and hence the pics are a bit dark.  Loads of things going on, from farming equipment to marquees with clothes and the usual Rings where there were displays and also competitions for jumping.












....and these things

ALPACA'S

Ummm, I'm not sure about them.  They look so cute,
but make a strange crying sound
and those long necks....weird or what.








 ...and they are as interested in what's going on as me!



The clouds eventually opened and we got a downpour or two



but it was okay,
daughter managed to get a free poncho from Mole Valley farmers



On

SUNDAY

thankfully turned out to be much brighter.
We went along with one of her ponies,  Buddy,
to a small Show at Poltimore









I think both pony and rider were pleased with their rosette



She got great support from her friends







It was busy

but it was a

LOVELY WEEKEND
