Kilnsey Show 2018
This seemed a rather tender moment between the beef cow and her handler. She had said something to it and the cow leaned in and gave her, effectively, a hug. Aw.
This family looked justly proud of their magnificent horse. It's a 'heavy horse' but I'm not sure exactly what breed it is... maybe a Clydesdale?
The sheep are a little tricky to control. Holding them under the chin seemed the preferred method of calming them. But the guy looks as though he can handle most things... Certainly this Dalesbred sheep was docile in his care.
After this hot summer, I imagine these sheep were glad to shed their wool. The young man was demonstrating sheep shearing for much of the day. I bet his back ached afterwards!
Children were captivated by the smaller animals. These saddleback pigs, plus some sheep, goats, alpacas and small donkeys were part of an exhibit by a charity that works with children using pet animals as therapy.
