We went to the Deerfield Fair today, the largest agricultural fair in NH. We get there at 8 when the gates open.
The weather was perfecr fair weather - sunny, breezey and 65°F.


I like the equipment displays.

There was lots of activity at the cow barns. This is a cow washing station as the owners prep them for whatever showing they are entered in.

After a refreshing shower a trim is in order. Lying in the sawdust is a hair dyer and curling irons.

I like the pulling oxen. The original tractors!! This pair is 7 months old.

These are the youngings in the judging tent. They must walk in a circle, then a figure 8 and finally back up.  The best do it on voice commands alone.

This is one of the bigger teams. The owner gave a stay command and left. They stayed. He came back to walk them into the ring. He held his switch up and the oxen just followed. They were exceptionally well trained.

A fair is never complete without fair food.
ML and Alice enjoy a funnel cake.

and Pirate Dan - a stout vessel playing rousing classical music and blasting  bubble cannons went it left. Though they are hard to see in the second pic.
