Dog Shows and Sunshine.

Last weekend myself and the hubby made the most of the lovely weather and headed to a local Agricultural Show. That makes us sound really middle class, however I mainly wanted to go cos it was a chance to look at lots of animals and spend time in the sunshine. It was such a fun day, packed with competitions, food, craft stalls and lots of horse and dog shows. I thought I'd share a few photos from our day.

Yep, there was a best vegetable competition which we found hilarious. There was also best flower arrangement, best fruit and art competitions.  

I managed to get a gluten/dairy free lemon top! For those from the North East, you'll know Redcar does THE best lemon tops. I must say this wasn't the best I've had, but it was pretty good - plus I could actually eat it. I was in love with the old school ice cream van it came from too.

There was a petting zoo with alpacas (!!) and other animals,which I was way too excited about. We also popped along to see which sheep won the best breed, they were these crazy curly haired sheep that looked a little like poodles! It turns out wild sheep don't really like being petted...

My favourite part of the day was the fun dog show. Anyone could enter and it was really light-hearted and pretty funny at times. All of the dogs seemed to be enjoying themselves too, showing off their walking skills and tricks and generally having a good time with the other pooches. 

The whole day was really fun and nice to get out and about in the local countryside. Haigh Show is an annual event, so hopefully I will be heading back next year.
