Fife Show May 23

On arrival to the Fife Show May 23 held on Kinloss estate Cupar North Fife and passing by the vintage tractors, my first encounter was with the Duncan family and their aptly named horse Star. Champion Gelding and 5th in riding, I'm not aware of the outcome of the driving judgement but I'm sure this young lovely horse will go far given the love, care and attention given by the family.

Star having a wee munch before the drive.

Other competitors strutting their stuff.

All competitors were well turned out following a long tradition of maintaining show.

What amazing patience these animals have.

There is a huge amount of nostalgia at play here and reluctance to let go, these machines did the work but cannot compete with contemporary developments.

Horse riding.

For the vegetarians, a culinary delight.
