Boys Plowing Contest, Orkney, Scotland
David Scott coaches his sons David, 16 and Douglas, 14 (the bigger of the two boys) in practice at the Sands of Wright on South Ronaldsay. With the competition at the Gala several weeks away the fathers start getting their sons ready for the highly charged contest. The boys are the third generation of Scotts who have been champions of the plowing, their father and grandfather have been champions as boys themselves. Judging is on evenness of the furrows, etc.
