Strathaven has a hoot

East Kilbride News - - FRONT PAGE -

The sun shone on Strathaven Show with a day of fun for the whole fam­ily.

Cat­tle, poul­try, sheep, goats and horses were all on dis­play – with pipe bands and dancers en­ter­tain­ing the crowds.

There was also a nov­elty dog show, judg­ing what pooch had the ‘wag­gi­est tail,’ could per­form the best trick, and even an award for the dog with the ‘hap­pi­est ex­pres­sion’.

There was also a prize for best­dressed dog and han­dler.

Rosettes were also handed out for bak­ing, pro­duce and hand­crafts.

At the end of the day, a Hol­stein Friesian from Hugh Neil­son of East Brack­en­ridge Farm was crowned cham­pion of cham­pi­ons by judge Wil­liam Bar­rie from Strathaven.
