from the puyallup fair

Yes, I spent a happy sunny Sunday with Tara & John (of Robin & Finchy fame) checking out the critters at the 2009 Puyallup Fair. What you see here are the usual cellcam photos (= terrible quality. I know). But T&J were so kind as to give me a few of theirs, which are professional quality, so stay tuned for some tomorrow.
Meanwhile, here's a 4-H kitty sleeping after a hard morning's getting judged.

All three of us loved this orange fellow. Just because.

Each cat's cage sported themed decor of some kind. This is a 4-H tradition/rule, it seems. I wish I had gotten a photo of the cat bed made up to look like a golden beehive.

There is such a thing as a Bantam Duck (this kind is a Call Duck, I gather). I didn't know that. They would fit comfortably in your open hand, and have cute stubby round beaks. I chose this one because all the others were posed so porcelain-smooth they didn't look real.

A miniature horse, as brushed and shiny and softly buffed as you might wish, having a nap.

This bunny might look huge from this angle, but he's a Mini-Lop. And much more beautiful a fawn color than my cellphone cam could render.
