Masham sheep fair roundup

Home again in sunny Sussex and just about recovered from the long drive. Pat did the short hops between Steeton and Masham and left the motorway bits to me. We took several scenic detours during the trip, so glad we did as we always found amazing places and met lovely people who put us back in the right direction.
The weather was kind except it rained on Sunday morning while the Morris men did their thing. A fabulous troupe of dancers called The 400 Roses managed to continue through the rain too, they were amazing, check them out, Tribal fusion is how they describe themselves and it was well worth getting wet for.
There were many highlights throughout the trip but for me seeing fantastic Teestwater sheep and Masham sheep at Ilton topped it all off, that was the icing on the cake. Willis drove us around his farm showing us all his beautiful sheep.
Masham Sheep fair is well worth the effort to get there and everyone we met showed us a very warm welcome, we were sad to return but vowed to return next year.
