Tysoe Flower Show

We were at Tysoe Flower Show on Saturday - and what a wet, wild and windy show it turned out to be, our luck with the sunshine definately ran out! The organisers told us it was the first time in twenty-six years it had rained on show day - it seemed to have saved the whole lot up for us! We got absolutley soaked during both shows, but despite this it was really good fun! Have a look at the photos to see just how wet it really was!

We were also filmed throughout the day by a two man crew - Jack and Dale - as soon as I know when and where you can watch the programme I'll be sure to let you know.

We're off on another mini tour this weekend - Frogham Fair in Wiltshire on Saturday and Emsworth Show in Hampshire on Monday. This time we're taking Tinker as well as Ronan, as most of the shows Tinker would have been doing this year were unfortunately cancelled, but we still want to get him out and about so he's coming too! It also means Ronan will have some company and won't have to work quite so hard! Rebecca and I are both a bit nervous about swapping roles for the first show but we've got plenty of practise planned for this week so I'm sure it'll all be fine!! I'll let you know how we got on...

Lots of love

Danson Summer Show

Well we thouht we were off to Kent but turned out to be going to Bexley Heath in South East London! But Danson Park was absolutely fantastic, with an enormous lake right next to the show ground, perfect for all the mozzies!
All our shows went really well, with Neil the Music Man excelling himself - it really makes a huge difference to the show!
As you can see from all the pictures the weather was once again fantastic - that's three shows in a row now!
Ronan was especially lucky - he got lots of presents and drawings from all his fans - to numerous to mention but seen in some of the photos! We also had lots of fun having a go at baking - there are some photos of that too - look out for our hedgehog rolls!
Our next show is another local one - Tysoe Flower Show - on Saturday, so we look forward to seeing you there!
Lots of love

Camelford Agricultural Show

We headed off to Cornwell on Tuesday for the 101st Camelford Show, which was set in the most beautiful surroundings with gorgeus views and fantastic weather - we felt spoilt all round!! Both the shows went really well with the exception of slightly erratic music. At one point during the second show we had no music whatsoever and finally resorted to asking the crowd to clap a rhythm for Becca to vault to! This they did brilliantly so thankyou very much if you were there clapping!

Duncan and Becca passed some of the time practising their rope spinning, have a look at the pictures to see for yourself!! There are also a couple of photos of the amazing wind turbines we passed - Duncan found them very hypnotic - no so good for lorry drivers!!

We're off to Danson in Kent tommorow (Friday) for an Oakleigh's Fair - we're hoping for more of this lovely sunshine! I'll let you know how we got on soon...

Cherington Flower Show

We've finally been blessed with some sunshine! It was a beautiful day on Saturday and Jive Pony performed at one of our very local shows in Cherington. All the audience were superb - really getting into the spirit of the show - so thankyou if you were there! Everyone was on top form, especially Ronan who performed his rumba brilliantly - he really does love a good crowd! Click on the link below to see a few more photos from the show...

Anyway, we're off to Cornwell tomorrow for the Camelford Agricultural Show, where hopefully the sun will shine! I'll let you know how we get on!

Lots of love
