Comice Agricole Loches 2013

Yesterday afternoon (Sunday) we looked in on the

Despite a wet start to the day, the afternoon was dry and did not affect the activities. Here are our highlights.

A fine selection of agricultural machinery was on display

A very tuneful band entertained

There was a small enclosure where children could get close up to a variety of animals

A demonstration of cutting logs into planks and posts

In the horse enclosure a demonstration of geese herding! We did not see the horses only some teenage girls practising their routines.

The police were out in force in case the locals rioted with all the excitement... Not really they had a recruitment stand! 

 It was complemented by the usual 'Frenchman with mike' and can they talk!!!

We look forward to our local Comice Agricole in Richelieu this coming weekend.
