The first big show of 2014 is  behind us!

Fantastic weather at the Abbey Hill Steam Fair: sunny but not too hot.

Katie made a fantastic picnic for all of us which we scoffed between the two performances!

On advice from Howard about ensuring the dogs were “fizzed up” for the show, I decided not to feed the dogs that morning. Wow! Poppy’s blue touch paper had certainly been lit: I’ve never seen her so animated!

Anyway, with the help of Sam Styles and Barry Overton pictured above, we managed to put on two really good displays. And I was particularly pleased that the long-awaited and much-rehearsed collar trick went down a storm.

A really good day for all of us.
