I asked this gal how she got the job of policing the State Fair on horseback.
She said a rodeo friend got her the job.
These sheep are all cleaned up and ready for the show ring.
I grew up in the 1960s, when there were still "Old McDonald" farms around. I miss the glory days of the old-fashioned farm, when everyone had diversified farming practices. That is what sparked my interest in the Amish... they are still farming that way and I love it!
Every child should get a chance to try milking a cow by hand! The Iowa State Fair offers that opportunity... the only charge is that you have to wait in line.

No visit to the Iowa State Fair is complete without seeing the Biggest Boar and Biggest Bull.
