It’s show time in Borsetshire! Eddie helps Pip with the lambs before promptly adjourning to the beer tent. Pip’s delighted when her lambs win, but she wants to run some figures past a farm management company before celebrating.
David congratulates Pip. She tells him that the farm management people think they’ve done well to get costs down, but their output could be stronger. Pip’s happy with today but wishes David could share her enthusiasm. Spencer reminds her that, as NFU Chair, David was busy meeting and greeting.
Enjoying the show with Keira, Emma warns Ed not to get too attached to a swanky tractor he’s eying up. Emma suggests Alice could be Keira’s godmother, but Ed tells Emma about the trouble Alice and Chris got into in Southampton. They see some decorative scarecrows and decide to buy one for George. They can’t wait to see how excited he’ll be with his surprise.
Ed emphasises how grateful he is to Oliver for doing the milking. He asks whether Oliver would like to up it to twice a week. Oliver’s happy to feel useful again, especially while Caroline is so busy. He eschews payment, offering to do it as a friend. Ed’s both touched and delighted.
