Not quite so. There was some misunderstanding between the Wynyard Show Society and us (Dexter Group) and we needed an extra steward for our ring! So Sarah had to organise the cattle & I was the third steward. I could not have been more proud of Sarah & the cattle! Not only did Sarah show Gazelle to the best of her ability (she missed out on any placings due to having such good competition) but she assisted 2 of the Dexter Group's newest young members Freya & Mee-Yeon Pennington by giving them some lessons on cattle handling. The Pennington girls went out in the novice handler and came first & second in their class! Mee-Yeon handled Gazelle, Peter Fleming handled Polly and Freya handled Julie & Ron Hunt's Tazhunt Hail Mary - they didn't put a step wrong. The only thing I am disappointed about was that I forgot to take any photos even though I remembered to take the camera!! Hopefully someone else got some photos...
Halter breaking of the heifers (weather permitting) is going to start Friday. My knee, although still far from 100%, I feel is stable enough to do some work with the "kids". I will let you know how it goes. Who knows, I might even take some photos!
Below are some photos of the show which Derek Pennington took. Thanks Derek!
