Sheet music, no bowing suggestions

Also, but in this slow session I didn't see a video specific to this tune (which may have helped you), but I may have missed it.

Thank you Carl !
I do actually have the music in D and a member of my tune group has put bowing patterns on it but they dont seem right to me. Ive been playing this tune for weeks but cant get to grips with it. The tune is relatively easy in some respects but .... I think it might be my age ..... There are 2 good utube versions in another key but I cant make out the slurs. In fact I enjoy playing it when I do my own bowing and often find playing other people's bowing very difficult. Think Id better start another topic on bowing patterns for those who play by ear. Thanks again.

As a left handed person, who plays right handed, I found many bowing patterns awkward or uncomfortable for me. I have an idea of how phrases in a tune should sound and just try to move my bow to be able to pull off those phrases. Some call it "any which way" bowing.
