The 54th annual University of Glasgow Vet School’s rodeo at Bearsden’s Garscube Estate was a great success on Saturday.

The fun family event, which was organised by students at the Glasgow University Veterinary School raised thousands of pounds for animal-related charities.

And with reasonably good weather, it is hoped to exceed last year’s total of £15,000 for charities including The Blue Cross, Hearing Dogs, Hessilhead Wildlife Rescue Centre to name but a few.

The truly family fun day didn’t disappoint– with attractions including duck herding, falconry, sled dog demo, canine partners demo, homeless hounds parade, dog show, and new ones such as an animal corner with alpacas and ponies from World Horse Welfare and a horse rescue demonstration.

The fun-filled day also had entertainment to appeal appeal to a wide cross section of people such as animal and craft tents, dance group performances, horse and carriage rides, with the ever popular dog agility back by popular demand.

A magician also kept the youngsters entertained – with balloon sculpture, puppet show and face painting proving very popular too.
