The beautiful birds in this area were winning ribbons.

With the exception of one pig, who was simply moving to a better sleeping spot, every single pig was sound asleep. Not one moved or had their eyes open. So Debbie asked one of the men why. He said that pigs (at least these pigs) gain 300 pounds in two months. All they do is eat and sleep. Sometimes they have to wake them up to eat and then they go back to sleep. He said that they have to crate the babies because the sleeping pigs roll over and crush them. Seems insane to me but there you have it. I don’t know how they got them to walk in a ring if, indeed, they did. Anyway, it made me feel bad, so we petted some of them and moved on.
I’m crazy about goats. Debbie and I went to the Lake County Fair today and as soon as we scarfed down a Funnel Cake we were off to see the goats. Goats are personable, they like to be petted, they make cut noises and they have fabulous eyes and great teeth. There’s nothing I don’t like about them. Admittedly I never lived with one, but still…they are fabulous and I love to see them.
I don’t like that they put a tag on him. 😦 I don’t care WHY they did it, the pig had no say in the matter. Blah. I also know that all of the animals were loved by the girls and boys who took care of them. But I still don’t like it.
