Scenes From A Fair



Mountain pig race is 4 pigs long, do-da, do-da. Vietnamese pot-bellied pigs, running the track. There isn’t much cuter, except for possibly the duck race that preceded the pig race. Lemonade was drunk, screaming on rides occurred, and brahman bulls were ogled. All in all, $5 well spent. 

*Thanks to the mighty Nicole for the amazing photos.

    Ohmigosh, they’re like, a cross between a pig and a chipmunk. Do they know that they’re in a race?? What incentive could make a pig want to run faster than a fellow pig? I find this fascinating.
