Princess and the Piglet
Jasmine, 18 months old, shows a piglet some love at the Clallam County Fair. It seems to be mutual.
I confess: I'm an animal barn junkie at the county/state fairs. I just love hanging out with the 4-H and FFA kids as they take care of and show their animals. Great life lessons from it for them. I love watching the people interacting and watching the animals too. I'm like a big kid... I spent an hour in the goat barn yesterday. Maybe this falls in the "too cute" category—okay sometimes—but I loved watching this little girl go nuts over these 5-week-old piglets, as cute as puppies. She was squealing just like them, and they kept poking their heads out to be petted. The first time she kissed one I missed it, but I got a second chance and nailed it. There really seemed to be something special going on between the two of them (pigs are said to be smarter than dogs, even as smart as 3 year old humans, one 4-H kid told me). ©patrickdowns
