New arrivals

A few pics from our trip the Rare Breeds sale at Thainstone last weekend. Thought you might be interested in some of the old junk that was in the auction. Plus, can you identify the wooden 'machine' with the number 11 label on it? Crikey, how did it get to be 13:09? Now I'm late for work.



And our new purchases....Hilda (Not her real name...) and her two lambs, and Solly (Sunday name "Solgar") the Soay.

Sheeps?
Pups?
A band of gypsies with their colorful caravans, songs, outfits, and dozens of small children to work the fields?

Darrell said...

Would it be a Welshman and a Scosman Mrs BC?

Mrs. B.C. said...

If it's a riddle you want anon, then it's more of a Geordie with a Frenchman with Leicestershire connections. Oh, and a wee Scotsman!!!!

How about some pictures. Especially of the Soay lamb.

Solly the Soay - all together now, 'awwwwwwww' Isn't he/she beautiful.
No idea what device no. 11 is - some kind of press, but what for? Also, I own a Tilley lamp (pic no. 2) and a Pyrene fire extinguisher (pic no. 7). Shows how much junk I've got!!

The wooden "machine" looks like some sort of press for squeezing liquid out of something into the tray below. Could it be for cheese?

First a Yorkshire Exmoor pony, then a Cumbrian Geordie sheep. I can't wait for the Cockney Belted Galloways to arrive!............Oh NO!, don't tell us G.B.C. is really Welsh!!!....lol

Mrs. B.C. said...

It's not junk, it's useful stuff from a bygone age. Can you imagine the stuff from now being around in a hundred or more years time?

kawa said...

Number 11 looks like some sort of medieval torture equipment?, to be honest I don't know what the press is used for, but if it had an engine in it ...

Mrs. B.C. said...

How about a honey press?

Gorgeous Biker Chick said...

Sorry John, no Twister pics this year :-(

Stu, a Welsh GBC? Tee hee.

auld robbo said...
