Yes, I know this is a total change of subject!

I went to Llandysul Agricultural Show yesterday, and it was the best organised show I’ve been to, beautifully laid out, with plenty of room for all the animals and their owners transport.  The weather was warm and  the views of the hills around the area, gave it a very relaxed feel.  Unfortunately for the organisers, it wasn’t as full of visitors as they’d have liked.

I “got into” agricultural shows when I first moved from London to Ystalyfera, and found myself co-opted as “official photographer” of the Swansea Valley Show – which unfortunately is no longer held.

If you happen to share my enthusiasm – there’s quite a lot of my photos of various shows taken over the years, on my rather neglected other blog  “The Spare”

Fancy Dress – on a Pony!

I went to Sennybridge Agricultural Show yesterday, and among some very fascinating events they put on, the Fancy Dress Parade they organised for young riders was a joy to watch!

Here are a few of the photographs I took …in fact I took so many photos at the show that I will be splitting them into various posts. (see also HERE)

To see the photos as a slide show, just click on any one of them and you will find the larger versions to scroll thro’.

To see some Suffolk sheep dyed yellow – yes really – that were also at the show – click here!

Sennybridge is in the Brecon Beacon area of South Wales
