This past weekend a took a short vacation and headed up to Seattle for some R&R. When I heard that the Evergreen State Fair was still in town I thought I would go since I haven't been to a fair since high school. I had a great time with my brother-in-law who was generous enough to go with me and such a sport considering we had to park about a half mile away from the grounds.
First up were the Clydesdales who were just coming out from the draft horse show. I remember one driver at the Draft Horse Classic telling me that each harness can cost up to $10,000, not the hitch, but the harness alone that goes around the body. Beautiful horses and impecable handling.
After battling the crowds lining up for the typical carnival rides, that literally haven't changed in over 20 years, we made it out to the animal barns in time to catch some judging. I was quite intrigued and fascinated because it looked vaguely similar to the dog show that I was at earlier in the day!
