Still time to visit the 4-H Fair!!

It's Saturday morning, and today is the final day for this year's Montgomery County 4-H Fair, on Route 113 in Skippack.
But there's still plenty of time today to check out the animals -- including cows, pigs, sheep, goats, rabbits, guinea pigs and much more -- plus the multitude of other 4-H projects, fair games, food and fun.
Here's one of the cows at the fair, caught napping on Friday afternoon. This is a Brown Swiss ... head to the fair and see how many other breeds you can identify!

You also can check out the fowl tent -- fowl as in chickens, ducks, etc. -- where kids can play some games and everyone can vote for their favorite birds! Here are a few I voted for...

This is a turkey shown above ... and yes, it really DOES have a head...

And above you see a really sweet goose!

Of course there is plenty of food to be found. Be sure to check out the ice cream being sold by the Montgomery County 4-H Dairy Club. My coffee ice cream on Friday was terrific!

And each summer I treat myself to one funnel cake splurge...
Yes, I pigged out at the 4-H Fair ... but it was worth it!

So head over there today... support the kids and the 4-H program!!
