Back in the UK...

Bouncing back at Bakewell
'The show also saw the return of an old favourite, the Dexter cow from South West Ireland, after a gap of 36 years.'

Farmers of future have day out at show
'Britain's smallest breed of cattle, the Dexter, made a welcome return after a 36-year absence from the show to form part of the cattle parade – the first since the outbreak of foot and mouth disease.'

Sculptures on Rural Themes,
George Bingham’s solo show hosted by The Osborne Studio Gallery.
'The artist lives on a farm in Dorset, surrounded by a menagerie of animals, including horses, ducks, sheep, Dexter cattle as well as the family dogs. George is a former jockey, his wife was a successful three day eventer, and their children are also keen riders. He is known for his superb equestrian pieces, his safari studies, as well as his ‘snapshots’ of participants of the Cresta Run.'
