Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt No. 11 A Horn

When I first saw this item I had in mind to photograph the horn on the girls old go-kart. Their go-kart was popular with them for many years and being described as suitable for age 5 - 99 it was tried out by many family members including my father in his 80s. 

It was the horn that was the bone of contention. Kate liked to hoot it loudly as she flew round the yard. Her cousins tried to "sort it out" by slotting a carrot down it to muffle the sound! Alas when I went to photograph it the horn is no longer there.

 So the Royal Welsh Show was the place to find a horn of the other kind. How spoilt for choice can you be? I was excited to find a venison stall with some antlers.

The sheep sheds provided more opportunities. Such a choice and such a variety!

I love this next one. The patterns are amazing!

Then we visited the cattle sheds........oh dear. 

I have always had a love of Highland Cattle.

A horn also makes a good handle!

And look at these.

When we got home and I went to put away our sun hats. Hang on!

Why was I looking so far for a horn or even a pair of horns when we have a pair in our own porch. A family heirloom from Brian's uncle!
