The main reason we went was so animal-crazy Jake could see the many farm animals that were being shown. And there were a lot of them. Bunnies and guinea pigs, cows and goats, sheep and chickens, alpacas and hogs. The most impressive to me were the massive Belgian draft horses and oxen. Man, those things are amazing creatures.

From the past, the fruits and vegetables that were being judged. They'd been sitting out on tables for days, so most of them were definitely past their prime. I did notice that our friend Tricia Borneman from Blooming Glen Farm won a blue ribbon for her basket of farm goodies. Congratulations, Tricia!
