The Bridgewater Country Fair, Bridgewater CT, a great ag fair!

The Bridgewater Country Fair, Bridgewater Connecticut is a great agricultural fair. Although we have had 2 days of rain, mud up to their eyeballs over there, the fair was great fun. I went for a few hours today and took pictures. I wanted to see the oxen pull as I know some of the contestants! The Texas Longhorns and the Dutch Belted are owned by Richard Smith Sr, and are really gentle boys. But watching them work is amazing. The Dutch Belted were first, they are only 2 years old. I remember them when they were babies without horns! They didn't place, but it was good experience for them. The first group started pulling 1600 pounds and ended up pulling 6000 pounds. WOW!

Cows, chickens, rabbits, pig races, an elephant, sheep, so many animals to see. Little kids in a pedal tractor pull, the Hot Dog Pig Races, rides, food, just great fun!

The Bridgewater Volunteer Fire Department deserves a big round of applause for all the extra work they had to do to keep the fair running with all the mud and rain. All the volunteers are a great group and made this fair another great one!

I hope you will enjoy this slide show I put together of the fair.
