Fair 2016, Monday(Day 4)

Monday started much, much cooler! Finally a break in our heat wave. We were so glad, the animals and us people had had enough. I think the high was still 89*, but the humidity was no where near as high.

All ready.
Just a boy and his lamb.



Monday at the Story County Fair is Sheep Show Day! This meant Junior was up. Denton was excited and nervous. Junior did so well. The Bottle Kid Class was first. They basically have the kids come in and the Fair Queen comes around and has them tell the crowd their lambs name and asks them a simple question about their project. They then lead them around the ring and that is the extent of it. They do have an interview with the Queen Canidates before the show to go over their project booklets.

Talking to the Fair Queen.


Walking the lambs around.

After Denton finished, I was off to rake hay. Of course this is perfect baling weather so fair or no fair it was time to go to work. Brother is very understanding and tries to let me be here as much as possible, but the old saying goes, you have to make hay while the sun shines.


Brother started the field for me. I was back at the fair in time for supper. Brother round baled this field. Tomorrow we square bale!
