West Side show
Isn't she a beauty! This is Gruagach an Eilein of Brue.
Here she is being judged. The photo shows CA with Adam Henson, who (apparently) is a well-know TV presenter. Quite a coup for the Barvas show to have him open the show and judge the cattle.
Here, he's explaining what he's looking for in champions, and every time he chose a winner, he explained his choice.
Of course, well seasoned experts like myself knew all this, but for those onlookers less experienced than myself, this was a real bonus.
And here she is with her rosettes. She won her category - Highland heifer over 16 months - and was Reserve Champion for the show overall.
Is this not the cutest thing ever?
Er, no, CA - not you. I mean the calf in the next photo.
Ahhhh, Mr Wayne. Winner of ... of... er, some category. It may have been, 'Winner of the Best Looking Owner's category'. Yes, actually, I think that's the the very one.
Yep, we knew you were something special.
