I've posted before about how much I enjoy visiting places like livestock shows, rural fairs, and the like. It's really nice to get back in touch with life that reminds me of my youth. Its also nice to immerse yourself in an environment that doesn't yield so easily to Political Correctness.
We enjoy walking around through the exhibitor barns to see the animals and watch the kids getting their critters ready for show. There are several barns like these filled with beef cattle, poultry, sheep, pigs, and goats. Many city people don't understand the level of work involved in getting the food they eat into the store.
There's also lots of wonderful food, and exhibitors hall with vendors of art, clothing, equipment, etc. There's also a really good Rodeo... but you'd best get your tickets early if you want to see it.
And lest you think that the Stockshow is unbalanced and one-sided... I offer proof that Liberals and Progressives are indeed welcome and given a place of honor and attention:
|Huh... Looks like these have already been sheard.|
