#66: The 4-H Kids & Their Animals at the County Fair

Reason to Be Happy #66:
The 4-H Kids & Their Animals at the County Fair

See posts #62-65 for other county fair reasons to be happy.

One of my favorite things to do at the fair is wander through the livestock barns. There's such a beautiful relationship between kids and animals. I don't even like to watch them show the animals—I much prefer the scenes of "hanging out" outside the show ring.

An escape artist goat, a little lamb in a sheet to keep him clean, a cow enjoying a personalized fan (that her boy kept spritzing water into to give her a cooling mist), and a girl singing to her pony...lovely things to observe.


  1. Love watching the kids at the fair working with their animals, you captured great photos here.

  2. Aww, thanks, Maria. Not all of these photos were taken by me, I must confess. But I adored what these captured.
