State Fair Part One: The Animals

OK, it was just one day of the weekend (the rest of the time I've been studying for the GRE). But, it was a load of fun.

We made sure that we went during the day this year so that we could catch a glimpse of the animals at the fair. And what a glimpse we did catch!!

First, there were the pigs. Lots of cuties at the fair. But, this one caught our special attention with his Elvis-like smirk.
And then there was this fella, who donated his derriere to the Midway.
We saw lots of goats.
Greedy goats, who were trying to eat other goats' food...
Pretty goats with floppy ears...
And there were lots of goats who wanted nothing more than to eat Lo's fingers!
We also saw plenty of adorable bunnies, including these floppy fellas:
We saw chickens with big feathery feet...
And stripey Tim Burton-esque chickens...
And even some Tina Turner/Andy Warhol chickens...
There were ducks with toupees...
And even a lizard or two...
And then we entered the House of Moo: Where we found Award Winning steer, who had been sold down the river for their meat...
And pretty little calves sleeping peaceful as could be...
And others spending quality time with their mothers... In the end, we were very sorry to have to leave. But, alas, it got late. So, we ate.
(See exactly what we ate over at Burp!)

So the cow won a prize and then was sold for meat? Man, what a contest!
