Native and Traditional Breeds

This week has a definite rural theme with these photographs being taken at the Ulster Folk Museum during a weekend that celebrated native and Traditional Breeds.

Events like this at the Folk Museum are always impressive and educational with the staff dressing in period costume and giving demonstrations on subjects from thatching to baking and how things were one hundred years ago.  The museum is divided into rural and urban areas with some of the buildings dismantled brick by brick and transported from their original location. Well worth a visit.
