Day 3 downpours

The rain has been more on than off, sometimes heavy, with only the odd glimpse of sunshine today.

So the wellies and waterproofs have come in handy with lots of puddles on the showground field.

The main ring is now very muddy, so perhaps we should do what the Millennium Stadium and Wimbledon have done and install a roof!

Despite the downpours, its been the busiest day of the show with the Cobs at top of the bill.

I met one of the winners earlier - a beautiful mare from Belgium.

Last year she came 2nd but did one better this time around, so congratulations to her!


Lots of people have been visiting the BBC building where you can have a go at reading the news or presenting the weather.

Here I am with Niamh Morris posing in front of the weather map:

I also bumped into the Rees family from near Rhayader who often send in photos for Wales Today:

So other than Monday, the rain has been the main feature of the show this year with more showers expected tomorrow.

    I`ve just finished watching my favourite weatherman, Derek Brockway at the Royal Welsh Show and couldn`t believe how rude and unprofessional Iolo Williams was when he interrupted Derek near the end of his broadcast!
    Derek obviously gritted and teeth and carried on like a true professional but his facial expression said it all.
    Well done Derek and very poor show Iolo. You made yourself look like a complete idiot!
    Best Regards to Derek,
    Mark Hooper.

    Well said Mark! There is too much pushing people out of the limelight.......I'd rather watch Derek any day; such a genuine, nice, sweet (though occaisionally naughty) person! a rare thing these. (And his legs are better than Iolo's) Keep them blue eyes twinklin' thats what I say!
