An afternoon at the Melplash Show, August 2022

Melplash Show, 25 August 2022. This one-day country show is always a great event and famously blessed with good weather just about every year. Normally, I would get to the show at about 9am to witness the animal judging, which is over by mid-day.

Unfortunately, this year I couldn't get to the show until noon, so I only caught the tail end of the judging... In the few hours I was there, I think I managed to capture some of the spirit of the event.

Heavy horses area, with life belt.

Judging goats.

Snapping prize-winning sheep.

Goats on display.

Post-judging sheep chill-out zone.

Fun with balloons.

Family with heavy horses. The dog in the window caught my eye.

The horticulture tent featuring unfeasibly large vegetables.

Hats, hats, hats. Approaching the Symondsbury Estate area.

End of the day. Cattle with well-known but soon-to-be-discontinued talc-based product.
