Every September we head over to the Kansas State Fair.
It's always a fun time.
Fun things to do and look at and of course
We tried a Pronto Pup and of course we couldn't
go to the Fair and not have a Funnel Cake.
My favorite thing to do though is walk through the equine area to check out the horses and watch the events.
Unfortunately my hubbys work schedule dictates
that we can only go in the afternoons.
There's not a lot that happens in the afternoon.
This year I was happy to see some of the girls working with their horses in the ring.
Oh there were some beautiful horses strutting their stuff!
There was a little girl there on this HUGE gorgeous horse that knew her stuff and had that horse going through
it's paces. Such concentration on her face!
It was a warm sunny day but dark clouds rolled in
and we did get a sprinkle but we
headed over to the Grand Stand and sat and
listened to a band play until it stopped raining.
We checked out the poultry and the bunnies.
There were some strange looking critters there.
A duck with Angel feathers!
If you were hoping for drumsticks on this bird you'd be disappointed!
A strange looking bird that looked like it came out of
a Tim Burton movie.
A ruffled chicken
And a chicken having a bad hair day.
See these BEAUTIFUL bronze feathers?
Well they belong to THIS fellow below...
Meet Tom Turkey
He has a face only a mother could love.
We had a great time and I'm already looking forward
to next year.
