Old Farm Day!

Today was one of my favorite days of the year.  Our county holds “Old Farm Day” every October to showcase local farmers, 4H groups and small businesses, as well as antique cars and farm equipment.  As if October needed anything to make it better!!!

The weather was perfect this year as well.  After a week of rain the skies cleared and the sun came out and warmed us up to about the  mid 7o’s.  The smell of hay, pulled pork bbq and funnel cake was in the air and there was a light breeze.  Cows mooed, sheep and goats baa’d and children were squealing with delight.


Emily reeeeeeeaaaaallly wanted these.  I am not positive, but I believe they are Exchequer Leghorns.

Sheep!!!  There was also a Rambouillet lamb for auction.  Oh, if only.

I want one of these portable sawmills.  Think of all the fencing I could make!!!!

Beautiful mule getting a nice mani/pedi.

This look says, “Oh please may I have this puppy????”

$5 pony rides.  EACH. These people know how to support their pony upkeep!

Mechanical Bull rides.  Also $5 each.  Emily lasted 8 seconds.

Neve lasted 22.

Emily maintains that they set it on an easier speed for Neve, and that she was therefore “robbed”.

Open – kettle apple butter.  Yummy!!!!  I am going to make some stove – top apple butter tomorrow, I think, and can it.

Oona loved riding on Brittney’s shoulders.  She was one tired little baby by the time we left.

I was pretty tired, too.

It’s a lot of work having this much fun.  Can’t wait for next year!!!
