Animals highlight of Allora show

IT WASN'T just about the rides and dagwood dogs at the weekend Allora Show - a lot of focus was on the animals.

Young show patron Huon Johnson came with his family, and used the show as an opportunity to sell some gorgeous pups.

"I've got four of them," he said proudly.

"Hopefully we'll be able to find them a good home."

Wandering through sideshow alley were siblings Andrew, Daniel and Emily Tynan, who were each carrying an English toy terrier.

The dogs had picked up first, second and third place in the pet parade on Friday.

"We breed them and they get shown quite a lot," Andrew said.

"We also breed riding and show ponies."

His sister Emily had success in the show, winning the champion girl rider and the reserve champion pony hack.

However, while their attention was on their sleek toy terriers, the children said they couldn't resist a bit of fun on the rides as well.

"I like all of it," Emily said.

Older brother Daniel said his mind was on the Almost Anything Goes competition, which he competed in on Saturday night.
