My favorite faces at the county fair were those of my granddaughters, Emma and Maddy. Maddy really liked the tractor she’s sitting on in the above photo. Her father tried moving her to other tractors but she kept wanting to come back to this one.
Almost all of the pigs were sleeping when we passed through the swine barn. It made me wonder how much time they usually spend sleeping.
Many of the sheep were already shorn, but there was this one…
Looks like it could use a haircut.
I think one of Emma’s favorites involved the horses being put through their paces by the young girls. I gather Emma has had a few riding lessons.

The alpacas cracked me up. I’d like to learn about raising alpacas. They seem like interesting animals.
