This was the first year for a new 4-H goat club in our county. Both our guys showed our oldest son's goats for the first time at a local fair in September. They placed 1st and 2nd, and 2nd and 3rd.
If you get a chance to visit a Fall Fair in your area, do it! I put together a few quick collages using some iPhone photos. The chicks look so cute and soft!
There is so much to see and do and all ages seem to enjoy the Agri-Awareness tents.
Our oldest son had a Dairy show every weekend in September and both boys completed Rabbit Club too.
My favourite part of this time of year is crisp early Autumn mornings at the fairs wearing jeans, a hoodie and riding boots and walking in the dewy grass while the farmers and young people are setting everything up.
We are enjoying great weather this week (in the late teens and early 20C's.) The leaves are changing with lots of gold, oranges and bright reds. It is going to be a great Fall drive to Welland, Ontario on Saturday (October 5th) for Oliver and Rust's vintage style barn sale. If you are local to southern Ontario you should check out my post on the barn sale here.
I hope you are having a great week. If you get a chance, head out and enjoy a local fair or small business event. Fall can be such a beautiful season and winter will be upon us in no time.
