Viewed from our garden: This is just parking and accommodation for a few of the competitors and trade-stand holders. It will fill up as the week goes on - the show runs Monday - Thursday. The main parking is on farmer's flat fields out of the town, with the grassy fields in the Groe area also being put into use. There were a few tents and mobile homes beside the A483 when I went to Cilmeri station to pick up Danny on Saturday, doubtless much added to now.
show you what you're missing. Wednesday is THE day to be there, as the Welsh Cobs will be shown in the main ring, and they are something else. Gosh, to see them hurtling round the ring, power unleashed, trotting at 16 mph with their handlers running in trainers (plimsoles in the good old days), is an experience not to be missed. There are always some photos to be found if you do a Google search. I used to go on the Tuesday, which was Arab day, when I had my Arab Fahly. Just to watch, not to show him there, although he had been shown there by the lady I bought him from.
I'm glad I'm not down there - it's a natural amphitheatre and in a heatwave, NOT a good place to be, plus it'll be Covid-central, that's for sure. It was bad enough trying to get into town to collect Keith's prescription this morning - the one way system was even more one-way as they'd blocked off the roads that cross the town and I ended up going round the block a 2nd time and parking right out near the Police Station. So I got my exercise early.
Meanwhile, my wild paddocks are in full bloom:
Much work to be done once it's cooler, obviously, but that's work for the gardener that Pam uses - basic lawn cutting and strimming he does.
Well, as soon as it's cooled down we have to go to Hereford again to look at and be advised on Mobility Scooters, and the sort Keith needs to go to Fairs but is still able to be lifted into the car via ramp/hoist.
I am going to spend this hot weather trying to keep cool with iced water, and reading spaced with getting back to my x-stitch.
