UK - The Great Yorkshire Show - Prize Winning Animals and their Owners.
John Taylor, vet, from Holmfirth in West Yorkshire, and his wife, Sharon, a veterinary nurse, have had Clydesdales for 14 years. When it comes to the preparation and showing, Taylor says, 'I do the washing and she does the plaiting and the ribbons - she is the artistic one. 'Mind you, it's not easy. Billy was clean when we brought him here, but he just lay down in something horrid while I wasn't watching. That's why I'm working late, cleaning him to get him ready for tomorrow. Billy is a family member as far as we're concerned, but I called him all the names under the sun when I saw how dirty he'd got.' The Great Yorkshire Show, one of Britain's biggest agricultural shows, is famous for its competitive displays of livestock. The event, established in 1837, attracts over 125 000 visitors a year and has over 10 000 entries to its pedigree competitions ranging from pigeons and rabbits to bulls and shire horses.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
