Held in Blenheim Palace’s parkland, at the edge of Woodstock in Oxfordshire, the popular show hosted a number of R.A.B.I supporters. Jack Walton, who raised over £7,000 on his tour of livestock auction marts, was one such supporter. He showed off his impressive skills auctioning off a number of animals.
On the R.A.B.I stand, the charity’s own ‘livestock’, cows Clarabelle and Daisy, proved very popular. Clarabelle, the stunning work of art painted by R.A.B.I supporter Lauren Terry, attracted many admirers, including Lauren herself. Interactive model Daisy, meanwhile, was in constant demand as children practised their milking skills.
Visitors to the stand also had the chance to enter a raffle to win one of two prints of cow paintings, also by Lauren. R.A.B.I CEO Paul Burrows had the honour of pulling the names from the bucket at the end of the final day of the show. Steve Glanvill of Hook Norton Veterinary Group was one of the lucky winners and was thrilled to receive his prize.
