The animals at the county fair are always a big hit in the autumn.
And the that first weekend in September was a steamy one.
This thirsty cow was so happy to get back to her stall after the showing.
She drank all the water and the bucket was promptly refilled for her.
She didn't even mind me going right up to her to snap the photo.
We couldn't wait to get out of there ourselves and head straight to the lake for a swim.
Most times we are bundled up against the chilly fall air, but that year was a hot one for animals and people alike.
This is the twelfth round of ABC Wednesday. If you would like to join in please visit this site for the details.
