Cows, Pigs, and Goats! Oh My!

Today we spent a few hours at the Allen County Fair where Aunt Maria, Uncle John, and some of Mommy's cousins are showing cows...or steers...or calves...or heifers? Not sure what the correct term is for all the bovine.

We got to see "cow food"! Surprisingly, no one tried to eat it.

Uncle John let us pet his littlest cow. You can see how delighted Miriam was!

Then on to the goats where we had to learn that we actually can't just crawl in every animal's pen.

This long-necked goat was very interested in the taste of Miriam's pigtails.

Love this guy's floppy ears.

And this tiny girl was the cutest! (If Miriam and Vivian are excluded from the competition, of course!)

Unfortunately, the camera battery died and we didn't get pictures of the bunnies, chickens, ducks, turkeys, horses, sheep, pigs, or lamas. Bummer.

Miriam and Vivian had so much fun petting every species of farm animal, checking out "Aunt Amia's Projects", singing, coloring, meeting an owl, and eating the annual fair apple dumpling with caramel sauce and ice cream. As you might imagine, they're taking a well-earned nap.
