It’s almost a month ago now but I remember this years Royal Highland Show as if it was yesterday, the Sketcher family and I had a great time.

Just to name a few things I remember a month on: we saw huge scary cows, and miniature goats; sat in lots of tractors, watched sheepdogs herding ducks, saw giant eagles and men climbing towering tree trunks; met some lovely stall holders and amazed at their hand crafted creations, we saw sheep being judged and horses leaping fences, watched as horseshoes were shaped and fitted, and ate some delicious Scottish burgers.

 

Looking forward to next year!
