Jersey Girls Rock!

Hee hee, I bet you didn't think I was talking about cows! I LOVE Jersey cows. I dream about someday owning one. They are so sweet and those doe-like eyes I could stare into all day. Their faces truly melt my heart. Last night we went to the last day of the Manheim Farm Show. I live in Lancaster County, PA so many of the towns have farm shows in the fall and this was the last one. Not a large show but enough for me to get my cow fix for awhile.
 How could you not fall in love with that face?

 This Brown Swiss was just as pretty and she won Grand Champion.

The barns were kept very clean and nicely decorated.

 Cute little red Holstein heifer.


 "That'll do pig."

Even Zoe found a friend from preschool to walk around with.

Awww, all the animals look cute! And the preschoolers, too! :) Ahhh, one day I'd love a Jersey! The Swiss is sweet looking. I also love Highlanders with their yak-like features! :)

Oh, they are indeed the sweetest. They are such gentle animals and you just want to cuddle up those adorable faces. I love cows of any kind - I love visiting them at country fairs. :) Theresa
