Anyone out this way want to meet up at the show.

Thought it might be an idea to get together and put faces to names[:I]

An indication of numbers on thread would be good and then the final organisational stuff can be done through PM.

30 - 50 Sheep, 6 chooks, 2 dogs, 1 cat and a wife - who wants highland cows, donkeys, ducks, alpacas etc [:D]

Not attending as it is proliferating too many shoddy carnival type stalls greasy food outlets and car sales yards to interest me now. Was worth attending when we arrived in the area some 17 years ago but now I fear even the "Farmer's Market" which has only started there this year, is following the same tacky scenario. To my mind, "Farmer's Markets" are for produce stalls..........

KiwiSapper,

Totally agree with the Bah hum bug thoughts. But as a discerning male shopper I go and look at the things that I'm interested in. Water tanks, chain saws, stock and getting a new toy for the farm. Leaving all the rubbish for someone else to waste money on.

Unfortunately this year I fear that I will be dragged to the other places by my niece

Okay, have been given the hard word by the niece and wife, both of which want to catch up with Bev and the wee heelan coos.

So....
What say we aim to be around the cattle (Highland) pens at around 1030 on the Sunday.

I will no doubt be dragged back to watch the judging of aforementionned cattle so there will be a second opportunity for any late risers.

I can be recognised by the wearied expression and the "Sims Metal" straw hat;)

Same wearied expression, same "Sims metal" straw hat

We need LSB sun hats, don't we? I won't be going, but went to the Dargaville Show and we spent a fair bit of time looking at the car stalls. Needed to replace our late Toyota Hi-Lux. Decided to get a small car that doesn't use much fuel, for running around in and stick to only 1 ute for the towing side of things. Fuel is getting too expensive now to use a ute for everything. MAke sure you're sitting down when you open your next vehicle registration renewal letter. They've gone up again !!!!

45 hectares between Whangarei and Paparoa. Registered Dexter cattle, Wiltshire sheep - black, white & pied.
New Hampshire Red poultry & Dorking poultry. Pilgrim Geese, Appleyard Ducks.
A cat called Pusscat and still looking for another heading dog.
