Gretchen and Emily at the County Fair

I always love to visit the animals at the Washington County Fair which is held in August. I loved meeting the delightful young owner of these happy pigs. She showed me how they would roll over to have their tummies rubbed. I am a great believer in happy pigs making delicious pork.

Heifers Davis School Road

I have had my eye on these beautiful heifers and their calves for a while, especially when the evening sun lights them up. Little did I realise the bull was in with the girls. As a sign says,'If you think you can make it over the field in ten seconds, dont. The bull can make it in nine!'
Later I was delighted to meet Lorraine Kraeer, their owner, who loves them with a passion. I gave her a print of the painting as I sold the original at Art in the Garden. She was quiet for a while and then she and her grand daughter started naming the ones they recognised! I am sure I am not a lone in preferring to eat meat from an animal that has had a happy life.
