Well we hitched up the show trailer and headed up to Egton for the last of the summer shows.
On arrival at the show field we found the usual scene of tractors pulling exhibitors on to the ground, however there was hope, the sun was shining and with a fresh breeze we looked set for a dry day.
Our stand was comfortably located between the judges luncheon tent and Wrights traditional candy floss and brandy snaps stall. We thought we had had an early start leaving home at 6.00 am but our sweet toothed neighbours left at 4.45 am.
By 9 am we had already heard ‘My AGA is over 50 years old and still going strong’ along with the ‘Now how much are AGA’s these days’.
Egton is one of the most traditional shows in North Yorkshire and we love our pilgrimage to the purple heather clad moors.
Apparently there are over 120 stand holders on a waiting list to attend this little show and we can see why.
This will have been our 25th year of attending, and one of the few where the wellies were actually put away in the boot of the car before the day was over!
Some of the photos taken show the local hunt and beagle pack in the parade ring, the vintage vehicles on parade, some of the showing classes.
A clutch of Shetlands- we wondered what the collective noun was for Shetland Ponies. We came up with a Shed Load of Shetlands!
Finally an amazing sunset as we drove home after a full and fun day spreading the word of AGA and associated wares!
