So long Domino



Sadie Wright, 14, of Mt. Morris, Pa., and other members of her 4-H Club in Greene County prepare to part with their steers before the animals are sold at a fair to raise money for college scholarships for the local farm kids.

It's hot for the people in the Greene County Fair show barn in Waynesburg yet the cattle are pampered with fans, showers and good food before they are sent to the butcher.

Nicely done my friend. There are no small stories, only small writers!

That's a sweet story, though a little sad when you see the affection they have for the animals. The framing with the image with the fans was lovely and the cow being sprayed from behind and one ear twittering...that made me laugh.
