When we walked in, the main event underway was the ox pulling contest. It's pretty much what you'd think it is; you have a team of oxen hitched to a palette of stacked concrete blocks, and with every successful pull they increase the weight by adding another block.
The picture below shows how they set up the runs. The tractors add the blocks and return the palettes to their starting position.
Near the pulling ring the 4Hers set up a tent to show off their animal skills. This is for Holly, we got this one right after they sheared an alpaca, or llama, not sure which it is.
Also under the tent were a few pens holding other show animals. Check out this one!
An Emo Cow! (P & P you should appreciate this).
And Emo Cow has a kid!
To top off the trip we stopped at the Fried Dough Hut. This style of Fried Dough is far superior to the sad Zeppole that is so common to the NY street fair.
