Ru­ral feast made with very fine stock

Whangarei Report - - WEEKEND ACTION -

Vis­i­tors to Whanga¯ rei A&P Show ex­pe­ri­enced a bit of coun­try, a bit of town, and North­land at its ru­ral best. Light rain on Satur­day morn­ing gave way to blaz­ing sun­shine for a fan­tas­tic fam­ily day out.

Chief pho­tog­ra­pher John Stone caught the ac­tion.

Colour­ful char­ac­ters Axel the Wolf, aka Ruby San­ders, left, and Teja Flow­ers.

Tak­ing the jump is Joana Bullock from Ahuroa, near Wark­worth, on Chevy.

The sheep rac­ing, with teddy bears as jock­eys, proved an ex­tremely pop­u­lar event.

Jackie Broughton uses what­ever comes to hand to move on some sheep, even win­ners’ rib­bons.

Smartly dressed Hau­rua Lau­rence-bade, 5, from Whanga¯ rei leads Spi­der, a 6-yearold minia­ture horse.
