    Background: Torrential rain added a touch of slapstick to the proceedings when the Queen Mother went to a special welcoming rodeo in - notorious for its downpours. Steers with a sense of humour made sure that their would-be riders ended up in the biggest pool in the showground. Rain or no, there was no damping the enthusiasm of the large crowd and no lack of sincerity in the welcome afforded the Queen Mother by members of the Royal National Association, who arranged the function.
