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.
