Others were more reluctant.
There were prizes for some.
And fancy outfits for others.
In the cattle ring there were some spectacular beasts.
This year we were not blessed with the best weather. The forecast was correct and there was heavy rain for about 3 hours in the middle of the day. We looked and felt a bit like this.
We retreated into the marquee for a longer than usual lunch before going for another wander. Something we watched for some time was the heavy horses pulling agricultural equipment. This gave a taste of times gone by. A muck spreader.
And a roller. A heavy piece of equipment requiring three horses.
A little taste of our day out where photography was curtailed by the weather.
