This past week has been a whirlwind of fan-fair (pun intended).  Our dairy-farming neighbors had 2 of their grandsons showing their cows with the 4-H program.   We had to some support!  And what’s not to love about seeing all the fun animals that the 4-H kids show off?

First the dairy cow needs to get beautified.  Before she gets to the barn she needs have been washed and scrubbed.  Here she is getting a final brushing.

Then its time to go walk the walk!  Its beauty pageant time!

The heifer and her companion did a blue ribbon kind of job!  Yay!

Next we decided to check out the other varieties of animals ready for their close up.

Here are all the pretty pink pigs.

Fawns!  But be careful because those baby deers would love to eat that plastic bag…. which would kill them.  😦  Always gotta be careful around babies.  I understand that!

Funniest part about living the country life is the limited choices in wardrobe.  Mini Man found a superman t-shirt twin!

Near those big tractors was the horse barn where Ariel trodded off to

This was one of the first horses that we saw.  He has scoliosis!  The best part is that someone decided that he was still worthy of showing and riding, he just needs some extra tender-loving-care.  Although, watch out because he may bite.  Yikes.
