Farm Show!


For the first time I went to the PA Farm Show all by myself. It's the largest show of it's kind under one roof in the US. I've always wanted to go and really study the animals but it's so crowded I became frustrated and only stayed a few hours. I did manage to get some nice shots. 
You can see all my favorite shots on Flickr.






Fancy chickens drink Coca Cola. 


Today was carriage racing. I saw many of these teams compete at Devon last year. 
It's such an exciting event.
Boy do those horses and ponies fly!

These would make great paintings. LOVE them. Reminds me a bit of going to the fair. I have been driving a porcelain bus, battling the flu and losing this week. So-oo sick. Feel horrible. I'll be back again to comment, when i'm feeling better. take care.
