We went to the Benton County Fair today. Smaller than many, but kind of homey and nice -- most of your normal county fair stuff. There was a really cute young pig in the petting zoo. There were exotic animals in one building -- a majority were said to be rescued animals. It was the first time I'd seen a live coatimundi. A cool all-white snake, a large tortoise, a serval, a small tiger, and other reptiles, arachnids and mammals were also in attendance. The highlight of our fair visit had to be when Carelia caught the runaway pygmy fairy goat (yes, it was wearing wings). Watching her son eat a deep-fried twinkie was also of interest. (He's into weird things....)
