The Last Hurrah of Summer - Animals

The best part of the fair for me is the astonishing range of farm animals!

From the tiny - ridiculous, banty chickens,

To the incredibly adorable baby pygmy goats.

To the hairy - angora goats here of all colors,

And cows of every size, shape, color and variety.

To the *enormous*! The draft horse show at the end of the day was gorgeous and impressive. They are such massive animals - yet beautiful and graceful pulling carts and wagons. The Clydesdales, with their hairy fetlocks, are always my first choice.

Julia - there are shire horses as well - and they have even MORE feathers on their fetlocks. They are wonderful. I didn't see any of them this year at the fair though...

What an adorable cow! :-)

All of these photos remind me of our annual "pastoral & agricultural Show", here in Queensland, Australia.
