Was dragged along to the Mayfayre in Bradfield this afternoon. As all of us townies know, English country people do some very strange things around this time each year. Pig racing was the stand-out non-urban activity on the programme. There was also a fair bit of maypole-dancing, sheep-shearing, and gun dog parading.
Maggie supplied Stacy and Duke for a bit of dressage. Duke is one quarter thoroughbred and three quarters shire. Four-legged entertainment was followed by the two-wheeled kind, courtesy of the stunt mountain-bikers of MAD. My personal favourite exhibit was the rather more static selection of birds of prey.
A full set of pics here.
