Royal County of Berkshire Show 2013

Newbury Showground The Royal County of Berkshire Show, one of the last big shows of the season, enjoyed a rain-free weekend on 21st and 22nd September 2013, .

I spent most of each day at the Show, the result of which are the 1200-odd photos in the 2013 Royal County of Berkshire Show gallery.

On the Saturday, I shot most of the sheep breed classes; the gallery splits these down by breed (Saturday photos only, includes interbreed and groups), with a fair number of shots of each of the following:

  • Berrichon du Cher – Black Welsh Mountain – Blue Texel – Clun Forest – Dorset Down – Dorset Horn/Poll Dorset – Exmoor Horn – Hampshire Down – Herdwick – Jacob – Kerry Hill – Leicester Longwool – Oxford Down – Shetland – Southdown – Zwartbles

… and a few other shots of various other breeds.

I also photographed the Young Handlers on the Saturday – these have their own section in the gallery.

On Sunday, I decided to get in a bit more practice on the video-making side, so – sorry – but no photos from the Sunday morning classes (Primitives, etc.) but watch this space if you’re interested in video!

The RBST Young Shepherd finals took place after the morning breed classes, so I switched back into photo mode and shot the junior and senior finals and the Championship. Congrats to Jack & Declan and to all the other finalists. These photos – around 500 – are in their own section in the gallery (link above).
