The East of England show. June 21, 2010

Filed under: Days Out — cartwheelqueen @ 10:38 am

On Friday the 18th of June we went to the East of England show. There were lots of stalls selling things like clothes for horse riding and dog toys. We watched some show jumping while my dad found out where our friends who we were going with were.

When we found our friends they showed us to a cage with some Beagles in it. We were allowed to go in with the Beagles and sit and play with them, they were really friendly and would sit and play with us. There was one little dog who was not a Beagle but a little Jack Russell; she could not walk properly but she was really sweet and licked my shoe.

Then we had lunch; we had to eat quickly because we were booked in to do some cooking. I enjoyed it because I like cooking. We cooked some pasties. I cooked a meat pasty; while they were cooking we looked at different types of flour and did some colouring. Then when our pasties were ready we picked ours up and went outside to eat them.

When we went outside it was raining so we went inside a tent. Inside the tent were some piglets and their mum. At first they were all asleep but later they woke up and were squealing for milk which was very sweet but very noisy. Also there was a flour stall where we ground flour and sieved it; when I was sieving, the flour went all down myself so I was covered in it. But my favourite bit of the tent was the chicks and ducklings. There were three ducklings and a lot of chicks and we were allowed to hold them. I must have had very warm hands because they just settled down completely; the duckling I held had very big feet which it wriggled about, which was really sweet. We also looked at a duck and a chick which had hatched that day. They were so tiny.

Then we sat in the show jumping place intending to watch some show jumping but we had to leave for dancing. I enjoyed the day because I learnt how flour was made and I saw lots of horses. I think I will miss the Beagles and the duckling and chicks the most but I enjoyed being out with my friends and I am definitely going back again next year.
