I had a townie's trip to the Cheshire Show last week.
|Middle-whites & Saddleback pigs, Shirehorses|
|Suffolk & Jacobs sheep, Jersey cows|
It was very calm in comparison in the sheep rings. The black-faced Suffolk and Jacob's sheep were waiting patiently while they were examined by the judges. They looked very neat and chunky with their close-textured wool. But it was the black and white Alpine English dairy kids that I fell in love with, with their way of half-climbing up the bars to get a better look at each other and any passers by.
Here are some of my sketches of my favourite characters.
