Goats and Pigs and Kangaroos – Oh My

After getting our fill of the craft building, we headed off to see the animals at the Fair.  My favourite by far were the baby goats – from a distance they looked just like puppies and were bouncing around all over the place.

To prove just how naive I am (or maybe I can blame it on the fact that I’m a city girl), we saw this kangaroo and when I saw the baby hanging out, I thought it was giving birth.  I was soon set straight that it was in it’s mother’s pouch.

No wonder this poor mother was lying down with all these little piggies eating!

The Ferris wheel lit up the sky and was a fitting end to a great day.

I ADORE baby goats! If I had a piece of property, I would own some. I love the dwarf ones that stay small. I love the fainting ones. I just love their sweet little faces. Of course, I also feel this way about white tail deer, Jersey cows, and black faced sheep. I think I need a farm!

I can see why the kid goats were your favorite - they are just adorable!
