Here are my pics from our family outing to the National Western Stock Show yesterday. I have grown a bit tired of driving in the snow here in Colorado, so the kids and I were checking out John Deer's latest All-Terrain family vehicle. But, on closer inspection I realized that not only does this model not have a third row of seats, it doesn't have a backseat at all. Once the salesman explained that, "Well ma'am, we don't put DVD entertainment systems on any of our John Deers." I thanked him for his time and WALKED.
I tweeted yesterday that there would be pictures of cows...so for all of you who have been waiting with bated breath, here you go.
If you want to see thousands of perfect cattle (you know...if that's your thing) all under one roof, this is the place. But I was surprised to find empty spray cans of black, brown and white paint left behind in cow pens and actually witnessed (witnessed!) breeders applying coat after coat of paint to their cows. Turns out, the National Western Stock Show is really just the 90210 of the cattle world. All the ladies have had some professional help obtaining their lustrous shiny hides.
