Harrogate Small Livestock Show

We went to Harrogate to meet friends from Scotland who were showing their rabbits.

Graeme (central) from Kinross with the Siberians

There were about 1500 rabbits:

Continental Giants

Of all sorts of breeds.


English (with a butterfly nose)


And all sorts:

A mixed class

There were gerbils, hamsters, cavies . . . and even some rats – all hoping to win a trophy.

Mini Lops

Graeme’s Siberian won its breed class – so he invited us to the bar . . .

Graeme, Hilary, Beryl and me - on our way to the bar.
