Long anticipated, The Amberley Cow Hunt is back this weekend and we had a great Saturday hunting cows and eating cakes. My children asked me to take lots of photos of their favourite cows and helped me to create this A to Z guide to Amberley Cow Hunt.
A is for Amberley of course, a village near Stroud in Gloucestershire, now famous for The Amberley Cow Hunt . B is for Bank holiday weekend when the Cow Hunt takes place.
C is for Cow Hunt, Cakes and Common – the essence of this event! C is also for Cowslip and Cowslips, lots of them on the common!
D is for Despicable Moo, Dairy, Dairy Quite Contrary and Dandy Dexter – just some of the wonderfully dressed cows you can find.
E is for Earth Moover cow
F is for Fantastic Family Fun – this is what this event is about!
G and H are for Gardens and Houses – while kids are running around looking for cows you can poke your nose into other people’s gardens and look at someone else’s houses (and there are some wonderful houses on the route!) , or is it just me?
