Fair Time

 We had beautiful weather for our local farm fair at Williamstown this weekend.  I thought I would start with some photos of the cows since they really are the most important part of the fair.  Most of the cows in Ontario are black and white Holsteins but we arrived in time to see some of the Ayershire classes.

 The cows are groomed and clipped and washed so even the white shines.  The tails are combed out so they look like feather dusters.

 Time for some refreshments.

 Waiting for their classes, the cows mix and mingle with the crowd.

 The people in the ring showing the cows are dressed all in white. You not only have to have a squeaky clean cow, but you have to keep your white outfit clean as well.

Lots of shade and bedding is provided for the cows so they are very comfortable, and after their classes they can have a nice snooze.


  1. Some great photos of rural festivities. I can't imagine how much work must go into keeping cows so clean.

  2. How wonderful that you had such perfect weather for the fair!
