Fun at the Farm Show

The Pennsylvania Farm Show is one event we like to attend every January. We go mostly to see the draft horses but enjoy many other things as well. The show is varied and there is really something for everyone to enjoy. The Farm Show is a full week of interesting events.
Our favorite thing at the show is the Draft Horse Hitch Competition. Those beautiful draft horses put on quite a show. The Percherons, Belgians and Clydesdales are beautiful, strong and proud horses. Here are a couple of pictures from the event.

Before we watched the horses we headed to the chicken displays to take some pictures for a friend of ours. There were some amazing looking chickens and roosters. Some of them are beautiful and quite photogenic. Here is a beauty of a rooster. I don't know the name of the type.















And a final surprise was this Miniature Country Store. I was not expecting to find any miniatures at the show but I was wrong. The detail is amazing I thought.

Oh and I can't forget the FOOD. Many of the various agricultural associations offer food in the food court. We both thought the mushroom items were outstanding.

Now we are looking forward to next year.
