3rd May 2011 : Lampeter 2011

On Saturday 23 April the whole of Britain basked in sunshine - the hottest day of the year everywhere except Lampeter Showground! All day a stubborn grey cloud hung overhead and a chill wind made it feel even colder. The day at the cob ring was brightened up by the colourful range of cobs on show with chestnuts, roans and more getting a look in! The Champion Cob, Horeb Tomboy, stormed round and round the ring, his feet scarcely touching the ground and he is pictured below and in the Archive with four different handlers! All the colt classes and half the stallion classes were won by English bred cobs and the three year old filly class was won, remarkably, by a Norweigian bred and owned cob. Normality was restored with Fronarth and Derwen wins in the other filly classes! Over 400 pictures of the cob classes are in the Archive.
