Animals need to show off too. The 62nd annual Future Farmers Twilight Parade in Healdsburg provided the appropriate platform for animals and people to show-off. Last weeks Rose Parade was not the last walking fest, as reported in my last post (a little more research would’ve helped I guess). Thus another five miles of walking means one more parade in the bag.

I just about tripped over myself trying to get this picture, clumsily hoisting a 300mm to my eye. I think this sheep was more in a playful mood than it was hungry. Why? Maybe it’s the smile.I dunno.
