A bit of spit & polish 2

This lady had the scissors out very carefully trimming the top line of this beef animal.

So much attention these animals get.

Three good things:
1. We talked to Jack in Takaski on Skype today. Lovely to hear all his news & see his happy face.
Also talked to Brian from NZ this morning, two thirds through calving.
2. Pouring with rain this afternoon but we got all the B&B bedding dry this morning.
3. Loving watching the athletics from the Olympic Stadium in London.
You did well to get your bedding dry! torrential rain at the moment!
Lovely photo :)

Great shot ,Pat showing all the care and attention given to the animals . Glad you got your washing dry this morning -- It's been dry here all day ,but there is a nip in the air !

@beryl We were just saying yesterday that there was a feeling of autumn in the air already!

Harder to groom a cattle beast for a show than a dog! Asked my Japanese family about Takaski and it appears it isTakasaki in the north of Japan.

Great shot and story

It is a bit over the top getting the scissors out to trim the hair isn't it. Are the judges that fussy?
August 7th, 2017  
lucky they stand so still.

Oooh, hope the cow doesn't move, fascinating photo!
