THOUSANDS have descended on a Hampshire town today for one of the biggest country shows on the county’s calendar.

Broadlands Estate was transformed into a stunning showground as The Romsey Show swung into action.

And it proved to be every bit as spectacular as previous years as Hampshire’s farming and countryside living was celebrated all day long.

There were cattle, sheep and pigs from across the county and hundreds of horses entered in a huge number of equine events.

Daily Echo:

Crowds enjoyed show jumping and heavy horse parades while there were also displays of falconry, gun dog training and the ever popular parade of hounds.

Unusual animals in the showground this year included otters, alpacas and water buffalo.

Food lovers were also catered for with a large range of gastronomic treats in the Food Zone while those with an eye for a bargain could browse through 500 trade stalls.
