The County Fair


It's my favorite time of year. Fair time. I love the county fair. The smells, good and bad, the barns full of every kind of farm animal with the constant reminders of e-coli,

and the scones.


Goatfarmer and I went to the county fair to watch the goatjudge judge goats. It was so much fun I think I need to take a few goats there next year, although the doe that won Best Doe in Show would have been very hard to beat and her yearling daughter was very Cora Belle/Bettyish. Very pretty Nigerian classes. I want to be a part of that....plus I just got a banner with my farm name on it that needs a little attention.

There were a lot of little boys showing goats. Goat boys.




And some very cute goat girls.




There is nothing like a big purple ribbon to put a smile on your face.

That looks like it was a lot of fun. Our fair didn't have many goats this year.

I had no idea what I was missing at the fair until I got my animals. It is an extra layer of fun that I never knew was there.

Fairs are one of the great parts of summer. Ours are in full swing. Love the ribbons.
