BLUE skies and blistering sunshine brought out the crowds for the 144th Eggleston Show at Hayberries Farm, Mickleton on Saturday and visitors were treated to a spectacular event.

Show president Geoffrey Wilson said although the entry was slightly down in the cattle, the quality was exceptional in both the cattle and sheep classes.

Taking overall supreme best in show title was Annie Stones, from Swaledale, with a Texel sheep.

In the cattle section, overall cattle champion title went to Joanne and Mick Souter from Barnard Castle with their beef shorthorn cow Ashwater Grace.

In the horse section, it was a day of celebration for Mickleton-based Richie Longstaff, who won overall horse champion with his Dales pony, Lowhouses Rhianna.

The four-year-old mare, which was hand reared after its mother died when it was two weeks old, also picked up the Emmerson Memorial Perpetual Challenge Cup and was named supreme champion in the driving classes.

Boldron’s Penny Wilson made it two shows in a row, picking up the trophy for best dog in show with her working collie, Mist.

Show secretary Alan Gent was delighted with the turnout from both competitors and visitors and joked his email got the the right address when ordering the weather.
