Watching nature take its course, from the top of a hill in northern England

Big Cow, Little Cow


This young man, worked really hard at showing his calf, he was a picture of composed concentration.

I discovered, despite his young age that he is an old hand in the show ring, I think Rowan spotted him at Bakewell Show last year. Not only was the calf immaculately  turned out, look how neatly his shirt is ironed, there’s a team effort going on here I suspect.

The pair were crowd pleasers and had many admirers

Now you’re going to ask me if they won a prize? Sorry I don’t know, I’d moved on to the sheep section before they’d finished judging; that’s half a story, I know, I know.

Watching the rhythm of rural life, from the top of a hill in northern England. Having spent most of my life avoiding writing, I now need to do it! I am no domestic goddess, but if I were expecting visitors to my home, I would whisk round with the duster and plump up the cushions and generally make the place look presentable. I hope that by putting my words where others may see them it will encourage me to ‘tidy up and push the Hoover around’ my writing. On the other hand I may just be adding to the compost heap. Only time will tell! Pull up a chair, sit yourself down, I’ll put the kettle on.

  1. Those are wonderful photos of a young man who understands that farming is a business proposition. The llamas seem as interested in the goings-on as the people are.

  2. That has got to be the most fetching child in Christendom.

  3. How cute is he! And the little boy is quite sweet too. 😉

  4. Such a sweet pair, and the little guy in a shirt and tie. Sweet.

  5. The tall fella in the back looks like a younger, handsomer Liam Neeson, doesn’t he?
