A little over two blocks from our house is our county fair grounds. It’s the venue for all kinds of events, from demolition derbies to small circuses. But the County Fair draws the biggest crowd.
Friends and neighbors gather to show off their produce and projects. There’s a small carnival with rides of questionable safety. Merchants set up booths and the aroma of a fine variety of greasy and sugary food fills the air.
My favorite part of the show is the animals. The farm kids exhibit their four-legged and two-legged friends all shined up and spiffy for the judges.
The chickens have such personality. This big guy knows he has something to crow about.
This big red just looks like he has evil on his mind. He’s the same kind of rooster that provided feathers for my Indian Headdress.
Double winners. Double gorgeous.
This poor little lady is missing her comfy hen house with the quiet roost.
