More fair week stuff

These big boys broke the record last night by pulling 5,800 pounds and if they had the opportunity, they might have been able to pull more. Gorgeous animals!


I wish I had a picture of this one mule who jumped a 4′ 5″ fence–from a standstill–but there wasn’t enough light for the shot to take. (BTW, the winner of the horse pull pulled 8,000.)

The judge for the steer show did a fantastic job of taking his time picking the grand champion market steer, keeping all the 4-hers on their toes, before dramatically slapping the rear of a Simmental steer for Grand and a crossbred for Reserve.

And I was a good and had the fruit cup instead of fries and peach sundae. Yeah, I know. Boring. Tonight is the last night of our fair. *sniff.* And last chance for that sundae . . .
