I have been haunting all the cow barns at all the fairs in the area.
All the participants, both humans and livestock, are exhausted. All the days are melding together into one big daze. I have seen many farm families in the barns with bloodshot eyes from the early morning chores at home and then a fast ride to the fair to do chores here too.
Everyone is sleep deprived. Including the cows.
These three beautiful young Jerseys are getting ready for some serious napping.
In all the barns, many of the cows and dozens of 4H'ers were taking power naps before their next events.
In the crafts barn I found many lovely ideas for flower arrangements. I plan on copying this idea very soon!
Several more fairs left to visit and hundreds of cows yet to be met.
Seen anything really interesting in your neck of the woods?
