My wife and I, along with our oldest daughter, joined two of our sons and their families for a night at Henry County Fair. Polly and I will both admit that we don’t care much for going to fairs — once every ten years is often enough for us. Nothing at the Henry County Fair changed our minds about fairs in general. We did, however, thoroughly enjoy the NTPA (National Tractor Pulling Association) sanctioned tractor pull. Outside of the tractor pull, our fair experience pretty much lined up with our previous visits to the Perry County Fair (1980s) and Williams County Fair (1990s). I told Polly, as a teen I loved going to the fair. Girls, food, and rides. What’s not to like, right? I am now too old to chase girls, on a diet, and scared to death of the rides. Such is life, I suppose.
While touring one of the livestock barns, I came a young women relaxing in a barn stall with her Holstein cow. She graciously granted me permission to take photographs.
