Heathfield Agricultural Show - Animals

Following on from my post on the vintage tractors, I just had to share some pictures of the gorgeous animals at the Heathfield Show.

Walking round the sheep enclosure, I realised how different sheep can look!

This beautiful guy was my favourite. He looked soooo silky and clean:

This one, on the other hand, needed a good old hair cut. It's hard to tell where the hair ends end the straw begins . . .

This one was dinky and cute:

But my favourite animal of all at the show was  . . . .

THIS gorgeous boy:

The was a pen full of real working bloodhounds. It was a hot day so the owners were splashing buckets of water on them to keep them cool and the dogs loved it. I wanted to take one home but Minty would have something to say about that . . .

Scavenger Hunt Sunday 27.05.12

This week's hunt is a little different for me. I didn't have the time or feel the inspiration to use my DSLR so I thought I'd take some quick Instagram pictures. Then I decided I'd add a little quote relevant to each photo. So here we go!

Beneath Your Feet

Got to love the feeling of sand and stones beneath your feet on the beach.

Capturing Movement

This is the glitter moving in a water globe of New York City. I bought it at Serendipity restaurant and it has the famous frozen hot chocolate on the roof.


Love the texture of this old bear.

Face Your Fears

Go on! Eat that apple!! This is a famous image of Adam and Eve on a bookmark of mine.


 Currently making the most of the gorgeous weather and going on long walks with my favourite boy!

Heathfield Agricultural Show - Vintage Tractors

Yesterday, we went to the Heathfield Agricultural Show, one of the largest agricultural shows in the south east of England. There are horse, cattle, sheep and pig classes as well as lots of craft and country stalls.

It was a HOT day so we didn't stay too long. The ice cream vans had a captured market and a Mr Whippy with flake is now £2.20!! Whatever happened to the 99p?? Guess that's inflation for you!

On entering the showground, we were met with this ginormous steam tractor which was pumping away. It smelt amazing, that steam smell that makes you think of "The Railway Children".

There were rows and rows of shiny vintage tractors:

My mum fancied taking this one home . . .

There were some stunning vintage cars too:

I think I'd rather take one of the cars home! My next post will focus on the show animals!
