From one extreme to another...

Yesterday we went to the Iowa State Fair where - apart from the cow and olympic gymnast, Shawn Johnson, made from butter ...



... where we saw this 'Superbull' ...



... called of course Tiny, but weighing in at more than 3,000 lbs. It didn't stand when we were there, but I guess it can.



And also this super-boar, Freight Train ...



And meanwhile, back at the farm, there are these tiny things. Two squirrels that were rescued from a tree ...



and which are fed with puppy formula using a syringe, every two hours. They seem to be thriving.

Someone must be very dedicated if they're being fed every 2 hours throughout the night - I hope they appreciate it!

Holy cow! That is one big bull.

They're getting frisky now, Kathryn. I'll post another picture up. And yes, Nik - a little TOO large for my liking!

Sarah - Please consider sending that amazing pig to our virtual village show - it links with VP's garden opening. It's titanic (the pig, not the show, although the show and the garden opening are obviously both great...)

A gymnast made of butter. That's just beautiful. Welcome to my country.
