It’s the time of year for a bit of exploring and it’s a great excuse to put oneself in the direction of pleasant temperatures and every likelihood of a breeze. Scotland has been benefitting from having a summer, so far, this year. So, what better than to waft away from the sticky towns and cities and head to the countryside.
At a local agricultural show, I got chatting to Irene from Canberra, who like me, was admiring this super youngster. “E’s not fully growed…it take ’em aboot five year to be growed”, we were told, by an equally admiring farmer.
A brazen surprise was in store in the sheep pens.
These two Suffolk sheep got first prizes.
….and what about this one
Certainly not your usual style of sheep. She got a second prize. I wonder which local hairdresser she went to, the back-combing is a little passée. Fluff Ball has potential for a first prize, if her hairdresser develops her styling technique.
