Muker Show 2017

Muker Show - 7th September 2017

The weather couldn't have been kinder for Muker Show this year.  
The sun shone, the atmosphere was magic, smiles all round.

The Swaledale sheep play a large part in the show

  Competition time for the general public
 Examining the finer points of a winner
 The serious side of showing sheep

 There was a good entry of vintage tractors - popular with many

 The first time a pony has been on the showfield for over 50 years!

 Relaxing in the sunshine whilst watching the Fell Race
 Our B&B guests from New Zealand really enjoyed the show and to our amazement
 Christine even ran in the Fell Race.  She is a legend!
 As the show comes to an end, exhibitors gather up their entries .....

 ... and gather outside the Farmers Arms to listen to Muker Silver Band,
take part in the community singing ......
.... enjoy a pint and reflect on the day.
The perfect end to a perfect show

Black Grouse

Black grouse enjoying the September sunshine.

Haven't seen a black grouse since the spring so feel very lucky to have been 
in the right place today, at the right time, with my camera.
