On a hot Sunday in July, I went to the Orange County Fair. On my own. Despite the heat. Do I get my medal now? I had a great time, and I took so many pictures that I will have to dole them out in several posts.
First up: A few of the farm denizens
Apparently I only thought he said that in the movie. If he didn’t say it during a photo shoot, he should have. But I digress…
This is what greeted me as I entered the barnyard:
There were anatomy lessons for one and all:
There were baby chicks – hi Marin! – in an incubator, even though it was hot enough to fry eggs…
There were almost-newborn piglets. There was quite a crowd, so I didn’t get a great picture.
The sow was grunting while the piglets were eating. It was a weird noise. Was she happy? Was she annoyed? She might have been talking to the sow in the next pen. Or complaining about the humans.
There were Watusi cattle who were not bothered at all by the heat, of course:
That’s a lot of bull.
And there were, of course, fiber animals.
The bunnies were pretty miserable in the heat.
