I found a poor quality YouTube video of these ladies: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cqn7IZ8bvG4&NR=1
This is, of course, all part of the entertainment that comes with the Balmoral Show - the Royal Ulster Agricultural Show. It is just over my back wall and we receive "compensation" for the disruption - two free tickets into the show! You can go and come as many times in a day as you wish and there's always something to see.
Today I wanted to watch the sheep judging so took an early tea (or a late lunch .... not sure which) and spent a happy hour wandering among the sheep pens.
I could go on and on ... the atmosphere at the show is fantastic and there's always something to see, do, taste or explore ... though you do need to watch where you're walking when in the area of the cattle sheds. There's even a "Cow Wash"! It looks, and works, just like a car wash and it was fun to watch the cows being lined up for their turn under the power hose. The blondes were there when I was watching but with the water spray in the air I didn't like to take out the camera.
O heavenly Father, who has filled the world with beauty:
Open our eyes to behold your gracious hand in all your works;
that, rejoicing in your whole creation,
we may learn to serve you with gladness;
for the sake of him through whom all things were made,
your Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
