This is a picture of Trilby taken yesterday when we all visited Bakewell Show which is a big agricultural show with horses, cattle, poultry, rabbits and DOGS on show as well as lots of stalls for the peeps to spend their money. I have decided to give up on the showing now and just enjoy life and blog about our adventures but Trilby, Crybbe and Aoife all entered the show ring and they all got rosettes. Trilby had to be groomed and made smart beforehand and it was a very hot day so hard to stand still for ages but she did well:
After Trilby had been in the ring we had a good wander round to look at all the others.
There were Old English Sheepdogs:
A calf getting lots of attention:
And lots of beautiful horses dressed to perfection with ribbons and shiny coats:
And there were lots of foodables around.
There was even a cupboard full of herrings being kippered!
And when Judith had a wild boar sausage in a bun, we just had to beg for a little try:
Yum, yum - very tasty!
Then while we were wandering round looking at stalls who should we meet but another mini schnauzer!
He had a bright bandana and I'm sure he told me his name was Trigger:
But I thought he looked a bit of a Lone Ranger :-)
He was working on one of the stalls with his peeps though so we had to say goodbye as we were looking for more treats to buy. Here in Bakewell there is a famous foodable called a Bakewell Tart and the original recipe is supposed to be a great secret but Judith and Leigh bought two little ones to take home for their tea. Here is a photo of it:
It has a buttery light pastry with a soft almond custard on a lovely jam base and is very tasty warm...or so I was told as we dogs did not get even a smidgen of Bakewell Tart to try!
Anyway we did have a lovely day out and here are the others posing with their rosettes from the show when we got back home:
