August 13, 2006 – At the Fair

Today was our day at the State Fair. I’ve got more than one day’s pictures, so I’ll spread them out over the next few days.

One of the most startling revelations was that sheep culture so closely mirrors human history. Bear with me, for this quick tour of “sheep through the ages.”

Practicing the orthodoxy of the Spanish Inquisition, these two crusaders scan the sheep barn for heresy.

The grand imperial wizard of the sheep barn, keeps an eye out for Suffolk sheep taking their place in the barn.

These laid-back California sheep have started their own sheep commune where the motto is “Ewe Don’t Give it up to the Man.”

Finally, we reach the modern era, where the pride wing of the sheep barn allows same-sex sheep to live in the same pen.
