In addition to the Butter Cow has a llama competition!

I watched it on Iowa PBS today. Beautiful animals.

Even saw an Appaloosa Llama. Had no idea they even existed. The one in the show was a guard llama.

For the price of a few guitars I could get one…

I live righ cheer in the capital city, have for almost three decades. Ms. Nutz and I took the younger Nutz's a few times when they were, well, younger.

Now, I find it hot, overcrowded and expensive. Plus, the older we get, our allergies get worse. Aside from a band or two (free and grandstand) we don't frequent much anymore ... not really a true Iowegian, I guess, though I've lived here all my 61 years ...

not really a true Iowegian,
I had no idea that was what somebody from Iowa was called.
I knew of only two places where "wegian" was added.

Norway/Norwegian being the most well known.

There's also Glasgow/Glaswegian (where I'm originally from).

Folks from Edinburgh refer to us as "Weegies". They also refer to us as "soap dodgers" but that's just part of the typical humorous rivalry between Glasgow and Edinburgh. The latter are all "fur coats and nae knickers" anyways;)

I remember going to the fair in Fayetteville, TN when I was a kid. They had Mule trotting/pacing races. No horse racing. No Llama racing.

I learned: horses bite, llamas spit and mules like me. I must smell like one.
