The Hennock show is our nearest country show, and we always go when we can. Organised by local people, the annual event has become more and more popular over the years, and it's a nice family event. There were a few vintage cars and bikes, some country crafts on display, and several craft stalls to browse. The dog and duck display was fun: a sheepdog rounding up a flock of large ducks is a  sight to behold. As they say at the end of movies: No ducks were harmed in the making of this show.

I discovered that there was an active local history society, so I plan to attend a meeting, especially since the next talk is about body snatchers in Devon. And members of the local metal detecting society were on hand to show a range of discoveries, including Ancient Roman coins.

A few clouds threatened, but the rain stayed away until the show was almost over. Fortunately, everyone could dash into the barn for shelter, because once it started to rain, it came down in earnest.

The photo of the Suffolk Punch, a large breed of working horse, came out well, I think. I hope you enjoy this slice of rural life from the edge of Dartmoor.
