RAF red arrows and another tow

We were back at the Otterburn Festival today, this time we took Horatio and Barnaby. I was actually Barnaby's first ever outing and he was a very good boy. You never quite know how they are going to react but he was fine, but then end of the day he was happy to walk to the edge of the pen to be stroked .

Horatio had a great time, like Hughie he love to interact with the public. I had to stop him from hanging out the pen on more than one occasion.

We managed to enter the show ground under our own wheel power this morning which was good. However after a few heavy showers during the day an lots of traffic we had to rely on a tractor to get us out.

The festival is held to help raise funds for the Air Ambulance which is a fantastic charity. I'm not Sire what the grand total is yet for this year but lets hope that it is up on last year.
