On to the Great NY State Fair part two. I kept going back into the animal pavilions. There was always something interesting going on from grooming and feeding to the competitions. You even had a chance to bet on which rooster would crow first. The chicken folks gave me their take on free range, not sure I got the whole story. I have decided when I finally get a back yard, I want a goat. Maybe I’ll get the dog too, but I’m loving the goats. The sheep are pretty cool too. Watching the livestock competitions was also a good way to get out of the sun, have a seat and check out the pigs, cows, goats and chickens as they vie for attention to be awarded the best of their kind. I have no idea what makes a winner, but I enjoyed it all the same.
