I had my first trip to Donna Nook on saturday and had a great time, it was absolutely freezing and snowing but well worth getting cold for and the drive up there.

It was lovely to meet new people, even if it was just to say hi, and i missed a couple of people i would love to have met....next time Smile

This picture i thought showed something a little different from Donna Nook, the mother on the left fighting off the Bull who was showing an interest in her, she was really going for him biting into his skin, all the time looking back and checking on her baby who was trying to move away appearing quite scared with what was going on.

A wonderful experience, i wanted to go back sunday morning but got snowed in!

Thanks for your time Smile

This is different, it really looks better when viewed large, emphasising the tension / aggresion, it doesn't show how cold it was. But I don't know if I can take you seriously again after seeing that hat Wink
