The New Forest Show
I spent the day yesterday at the New Forest Show in Hampshire. About 2 hours' drive South of London you are well and truly in the countryside.
Who has the handsomest sheep? or the prettiest pig?
And then there was a display of terrier racing! Boy did I love that almost as much as these feisty little terriers did. They are loaded up into little starting crates and a fake furry animal on a long string is waved in front of them.
Then when the gates open someone moves the lure as fast as they can, you can just about see it in a blur here! Completely wonderful seeing dogs happy doing what they were bred to do. Sheer enjoyment!
Then after all that walking around Matron decided to try a fish pedicure!! Strangely wonderful!
