Admittedly, I’m not much of an animal lover. I love my dog, my sister’s dog, and my girlfriend’s mother (Huzzah!). Other than that, animals don’t really do anything for me. That being said, when I came across the petting zoo at the Central Wyoming Fair and Rodeo, I was like a little kid.

I petted (pet? pat? put?) all sorts of different animals, from goats to cows to chickens to pigs, and I loved them all a little bit. I wanted to take a little piggy home, while all his family went to the market. I actually didn’t know the petting zoo existed at the CWFR. Perhaps of if I did, I would have changed my view on animals years ago. Here are some pics of the animals of the CWFR.
