A Day At The Royal Melbourne Show...
The first pic is of the Woodchop Competition, this day was the competition day for the Victorian Police to display their talent. The crowd counted how many chops they had each side of the stump, before it colla[sed away from the block.
The second pic is Nicholas after his ride on the biggest slide there at the show...he flew down that slide the skinny little turd, LOL!
The third pic is from the main arena, there was a contest between three teams. Red, Blue and Yellow. Yellow team won the cup. They had to race around the circuit on the horse, tag the guy driving the rig with the horse towing it, he had to go around the circuit, pick up a few guys and some hey and some other equipment and get to the finish line. Then the motocross dudes had to speed around the track and tag the dune buggie guys and that was the end of the tournament. It was great to watch, I went for the yellows, yippee, they won :)
4th pic is some genie magic, two guys got roped into doing an act with ropes..no! Not that kinda act people!! Sheesh!! They had to kick the rope and it was supposed to tie it in a knott...did not work, PMSL!
5th pic is a vehicle for a radio station here in Melbourne, they broadcast live from teh show this year.
6th pic is the horse that won on the day for her excellent skills out in the arena..just gorgeous.
