A Day at the Fair, Animal Edition


At the Lane County Fair I saw:

Alaskan Racing Pigs (these are babies in training):


Stubborn as a Goat (or a little girl in a tutu):


Fancy Lady in a Bonnet:

The goats are from the Goat Gala, or the dressed up goat parade. My family raised dairy goats when I was a child so I have a soft spot in my heart for the horizontal-pupiled creatures.

    Can’t imagine any of ours letting you guys dress them up like that. It looks like the igs are going like a house-afire. What fun it looks.

    Alaskan racing pigs. I bet those are better than a plain old racing pig.
