Falstone Show 2010

Posted by Picasa
For the third year running luck has been on the side of Falstone Show, heavy showers the day previous abated and the day dawned dry and relatively bright. Probably ideal conditions for the stock as it never got out too hot, just a truly pleasant day both weather wise and socially.

The Scotch blackfaced classes were well supported, probably due to the fact the show was honoured to have the president of the Blackfaced Sheep Breeders Association as the judge, no mean fete to travel all the way down from Argyll to do the honours.
Competition was strong through out the day whether it be in the sheep pens, dog and hound lines, industrial tent or children's sports.

Falstone Show celebrated it's 125th centenary in style. Red commemorative rosettes were presented to every first prize winner throughout all the classes, a treat to those competing in the industrial tent as prize tickets are the norm.

Once again a truly memorable day, enjoyed by all who attended.
