A FREE family day out at a Newton Poppleford farm takes place on Sunday August 30.

Entry is free and all are welcome at the lamb shearing competitions and dog trails run by the Devon County Show at Ashtree Farm, Newton Poppleford, near Sidmouth.

As well as watching the fast-paced shearing competitions - which attract top shearers who take less than a minute to shear a sheep - there will be One Man and His Dog-style sheep trails where the skill and relationship between handler and dog is put to the test.

Competitions start at 9am and the event is thanks to Clinton Devon Estates.
