The Sydney Royal Easter Show is a huge 2 week agricultural show where the best horses, goats, sheep, cattle, chooks, cats, dogs, fruit, vegetables, flowers, arts and crafts compete for first prize. It’s  a chance for city folk to see where their food comes from and a fun day out for everyone, here’s some photos

    I’m going to miss the Show this year so loved your photos, especially of the bantams, so beautiful, and the Clydesdales. Thanks, Mo, for reminding me I’m a country girl at heart.

      I dream of one day living on a houseboat with a floating garden attached to the back, I will look after a pair of Silver Sebrights then, they are such beautiful birds and very calm!
