A Day Out At The Country Show...

 Yesterday we went to the Autumn Country Show held at the Wealde & Downland Open Air Museum. We'd had the day planned for weeks but were keeping our fingers crossed the weather would be kind - luckily the sun shone for us.  We saw sheepdogs herding ducks...
 Indian runner ducks - they didn't seem perturbed by being chased round the arena, in fact I think they knew the routine very well!
We saw many heavy horses competing in a ploughing competition.
 They were magnificent!
There was a huge threshing machine worked by a traction engine - it did the whole job, threshing, sorting and baling hay.
Very interesting to watch, although a bit dusty!

As well as the above there were many demonstrations of old country crafts, food stalls, plus hawks and gun dogs.  A good time had by all!
