Sights To Be Seen At The Puyallup Fair & Give-Away

One morning very early before the fair was open to the public, I saw a line-up of cattle waiting to be judged as I walked to the barn my sheep were being exhibited in. The cattle were so clean and quiet. There were about 20 cattle all tied to the fence rail. I stood and watched them for quite awhile, then had to scoot over to my barn to clean up the sheep pens before the fair opened. I wish I could have stayed and watched the judging. The line of cattle was an amazing sight to me.
I love the scent of cattle chewing grass and hay. The soft crunching sound they make as they chew, peaceful.
The Animals of the World Barn, where I am, has different kinds of cattle as well as yaks, camels, zebras and zedonks. There are also miniature horses and donkeys, turkeys,exotic sheep, sometimes reindeer ( Goth was mighty interested in Sugar the Reindeer ) and once there was a kangaroo. The Watusi is impressive. The little calf above is a Dexter . Don't you just want to snuggle this little babe? I will be spinning my Jacob sheep wool or locker-hooking a rug while I answer questions from the public.
Our Grandson C.T. will be cleaning up!Come on down and do the Puyallup !
Don't forget the give-away.* I will enter your name as many times as you comment and the winner will be announced next Tea Time Tuesday.

Thank you for sharing photos of the animals at the fair. I enjoy seeing your grandson and you busy at work also.
I absolutely love the table runner I received from you. We really treasure it.
Have a wonderful time!

I loved seeing the photo of you spinning at the fair. I wish I could drop by....next year I'll put it on the calendar, as it's completely do-able at this time of year.

I went to the Fair yesterday. I didn't know you lived so close to me. Course, I used to live in the Tacoma area now I live near Seattle.

I recall(many moons ago) looking forward to the Puyallup fair! A bunch of us girls would get one of the parents to drive us out there and we'd just hang out there all day long until someone picked us up.

(That was before cell phones and we had a prearranged time back then! LOL)

Thanks for the memory!
