Nottinghamshire County Show 11-12 May 2013
Well what a weekend.
In the end we were the only herd to make it to the Nottinghamshire County Show this year.
We had checked out our pitch the week before & were amazed when we rolled up to the gates at 8 o'clock to see a row of caravans there. Luckily, as we do not take up too much room, there was a perfect space for us on the end where a tractor & trailer was parked. 'Just move the tractor & we'll set up', but the keys could not be found & it took an hour & a quarter to move it, so if we were looking a little frazzled & rushing to set up on Saturday morning, this is why!
After this little hiccup we had a wonderful weekend, talked about the alpacas & their amazing fleeces, had all our scarves etc on show & they sold well. Our spot next to the Yellow Gate was perfect & Magic, Swift, Blade, Wallace, Sparkle & Daley were very good.
The weather could have been a lot kinder, at one stage Martin was hanging on to the gazebo pole to stop it from flying away but we & the scarves remained dry :)
