January: rain, dark nights, and the occasional joke

The farm animals decide it is time to finally settle the debate as to who amongst them is the best public speaker.  They decide to organise a talent competition, with the farmer and his wife as judges. The prize for the winner is a large marquee, containing a dance floor, DJ and glitter ball.

The pig is first up.  He reads a speech he has prepared from Macbeth.

Next is the horse, who reads a soliloquy from Hamlet.

Finally, the cow delivers a speech from Richard III.

The farmer and his wife go off to confer.  They have a lot to think about, as all of the speeches are excellent.

After much consideration, they finally come back to the farmyard and make their announcement: “Cow is the winner of our disco tent.”
