First day of last Royal all done

Well, that’s us for today folks, the first day of the last Royal is just about through – apart from the requisite trip to the bar that is – and its been a funny sort of a day all round, judging has been good watch but often hard to follow and the atmosphere is a bit lacklustre.

I think I’m pretty much caught up with the results and we’ve got as many photos as the weather would allow, so I’m off to feed the sheep and water myself.

I’ll apologise in advance for a slow service tomorrow, but we’ve two lots of sheep out in the morning, so I’ll be busy with them til lunch then it’ll be straight on with the dairy judging and the remainder of the beef classes too, here’s hoping tomorrow’s a brighter day, I’m no fan of showing in the rain…..
