Cymdeithas Amaethyddol Frenhinol Cymru Ffair Aeaf

We went to the Royal Welsh Winter Fair yesterday, so here are my barely edited photos and thoughts from the day in no particular order...

Next year's Thanksgiving dinner perhaps?


These sheep appear from their tags to be registered Balwen -- but we have never seen Balwen this light coloured before. I want to try to get in touch with these breeders -- it could be useful to have both light and dark coloured wool for spinning/knitting... According to the label, they were bred by Goronwy and Eiddwen Jones -- if you are them or know them, please let me know!


The lamb carcass competition:


Now this is an interesting one -- this is the inaugural Creative Skills Welsh Young Butcher competition...




Mystery photo -- I think this is so beautiful -- can you guess what this is a photo of?


Lots of gifts for sale to suit all tastes:






These are from the children's competition to create an edible snowman:




Big mean tough bull with a nice little blue ribbon...


From the poultry competition -- I have decided I want one of these!!! They are just so cute...


Greg offered to take a picture of me standing next to one, but I thought that would be a bit too much. This is NOT on my Xmas list:


Cockerel with a comb that looks like a brain:


Forgot to put this up with the other carcasses -- the Beef Ribs Competition:


Overall I had a great time and can't wait for next year...

What a neat fair you have! It has so much more than our county fair does. Great pics! Beautiful sheep!
