|It was a gorgeous day for a drive!|
So the very next morning at 9:00 am found me at the fairgrounds once again. My booth was located in the Farm Adventure Tent and I had this little gal as my neighbor:
Isn't she cute? One of our animal health techs had given me a ride to my "office" in a golf cart so she could check on the animals. So I asked if I could go visit the calf for some pictures. And she let me!
|I asked if she had a name. She didn't. So we called her Elsie.|
Elsie was very friendly.
There were some baby ducks and chicks too but their fencing didn't allow me any good picture opportunities. The chicks were cute...but the baby ducks were so soft and fluffy looking. I wanted to hold one but since I got to hang out with the calf, I didn't want to press my luck.
One of my favorite things about the Mountain State Fair that the Raleigh state fair doesn't have was the chair lift. It goes the whole length of the fair. It works out well if you ride right before lunch...you can check out all your options :) But you also get a fantastic view:
|That's my kind of Fair ride.|
|For Grant: Mama in a giant tractor wheel|
|Of all my random animal pics, I decided to post this one.|
Not sure if it's a him or her but it's cute and sleepy either way :)
Oh yeah...I got to see a guy get shot out of a cannon too.
|I was rather excited to catch this one.|
