Fair pictures! (Part 1)

I didn't intend to wait a week to show you these photos, but here we are a week later!

I apologize in advance for the ungreatness of many of these photos. I wasn't in the best photography conditions and was taking pictures more for fun than to create something to hang on the wall (unless someone wants a mediocre photo of cows on their wall?). Most of these are animals, because I really like seeing animals and thought you might too. If not, too bad so sad.

Some of these barny buildings are pretty cool inside. First stop: bunnies!

Here we have a legless bunny of adorable. He's like a soft ham with ears.

So soft-looking! Come here, softy! Let me feed you carrots!

Who needs a pheasant break after all those rabbit photos? Did you know pheasants were so colorful? I've only seen like two in my life before this fair: one bouncing on the road after the car I was in hit it, and one running off into some tall weeds.

I imagine these ones are native to foreign lands. They're like parrots.

Very stylish.


Adorable, like a canary. Sorry so blurry.

Not so lovely.

Back to bunnies.

Annnnnd: guinea pigs! This one is named Daniel, so I had to take a picture for my friend Dan. I bet Dan never realized his parents named him after a guinea pig--what an honor!

This one had a cute hairstyle.

Kind of a straight bob with the hair parted on the side. Trendy. We had lots of guinea pigs growing up, and one of them--Harry--was a long-haired one like this, only I don't remember him having side-swept bangs.

PS I ♥ guinea pigs. RIP Jumper, Stripe, Splasher, CC, Harry (Hairy?), Oreo, Cola, Cally, etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.

One more bun. I think this was named Yoda or something else Star Warsy. Yoda makes the most sense, though.

Here you go. If you'd like to purchase this print, please email me.

I loved these Belgians. They were very large, though this photo doesn't quite depict it. Seeing large horses is sort of like seeing airplanes on the ground. So big!

Just standing. "What did you do today?" "Oh, I stood facing a wall." Kind of like they're all in time out. I kept wondering aloud (to my friends) whether the animals enjoy fair time. It doesn't seem all that fun for them, but maybe they really like all the people.

An unfortunate-looking llama. How awesome it must be for animals--they just sit there totally unaware of how dorky they might appear, and none of their animal friends notice either.

Goats! I don't know why, but I took way too many goat photos. They were just being so goaty, and I kept thinking about my friend Fayelle who loves goats so much. Shout out to Fayelle!

"Mom. Mom. Mom. Mom. Mom."

She just needs a little peace.

This was a tiny goat all by his lonesome.

Goat mouth!

I'm pretty sure you weren't supposed to pet the pigs.

And I'm really sure you aren't supposed to lean over into the pen. I had this boy arrested after I took the photo.

I just now realize it says they were born in 2012. Do you think that's a typo? Baby pigs don't grow that slowly, do they? My pig expertise is limited to several viewings of Charlotte's Web, but I think Wilbur grew up a lot in a year.

Goats are like dogs.

And piles of laundry.

Can't forget a blurry sheep photo! I just thought it was cute how he was chewing on some hay. All of the sheep were freshly sheered...shorn? What's the word? I was kind of bummed not to see a big puffy one.

Okay, I just realized that I have too many photos for one post, so I'll post the rest maybe tomorrow. Have a great day!


  1. I love all the animal photos, especially the guinea pigs. What a hairdo that sheep has. The birds are beautiful. I guess it didn't say what kind they are.

    I agree there must be a typo on the mama pig and piglets. Mama is only 3 years old. How could those piglets be over 1 year?

    Thanks for sharing.

  2. Soft hams with ears?! Jessica!

    I did know I was named after a guinea pig, but thanks for confirming!

    : )

  3. Thanks, Mom! Oh you mean the llama?

    The birds are pheasants....if those are the photos you're talking about. I did say that, but I didn't note the specific type. :)

    Dan - You did not know! Your parents told me they never told you.

  4. Love these!! BUNNIES

    When my rabbit used to do that legless pose, we called him "Jelly Bean Bun" because it made his body the shape of a jelly bean.

  5. Your captions made me LOL!

    I love the dorky llama. Do you allow LJ icons of your photos? I want to make one of him with the words "Dorky Llama".

  6. I hate all those animal pictures. They are terrible.

    I'm kidding. I love them.

    But I especially love the first one with the ferris wheel and some human animals in it. I love the bright colors in that picture.

    Now, onto part II. I'm so behind in all aspects of blogging.

  7. "Soft ham with ears" = best decription EVER.

    AGH!!! Goats!!!! Oh my gosh I love tiny goats on hay bales. Yay!!! So adorable.

    That llama also needs to come home with me. I feel like all llamad are dorky and that one is just excelling.

    Love these!

  8. Brenda - Yes, jelly bean! That's a great description.

    Laura - Thanks! Oh and I meant to get back to this sooner--of course you can make an icon. Thanks!

    R - You're having a strange humor day. :P Since when do you like bright colors?

    Fayelle - :D Yes, the llama just had something extra, even though we discovered they all had weird teeth. That one just looked really dorky and embarrassing. :P
