I know he doesn't live at Strickley now, but even living in Belper Rob will alway be a Strickley Robinson. For some reason he's very much into physical activity, and yesterday did his first Triathlon (Derby Trialthlon). He came in well into the top half and is already planning to do more.
He's come a long way since his bike had three wheels and he wore woolly mittens.
Last Thursday was Westmorland County Show. We've been showing there since the family took on the farm in 1875. In those days it was just sheep and produce, but for a long time cow it's just been in the Dairy Shorthorn Classes.
It was a good day for the Strickley Herd; the judge, Ian Collins from Yorkshire must have liked our cows.
