Behind the scenes: Gettin’ ready

And you thought it took YOU a while to get ready this morning:

You’ll see in the video cows getting a “blow dry,” a combing, getting a “shower” (while also taking a drink) and sheep getting a “shave” as we took a walk around the Jim Graham building where the livestock hang out during the Fair. The Junior Dairy shows are up first, so we got to see dedicated kids taking care of their sheep and cattle. Check them out at the junior competitions that start up at 9 a.m. in the Graham and Kelley buildings.

About Cotton Candy

Karlie Justus - blogged for the 2008 / 2009 N.C. State Fairs. This is her bio from 2009: When I'm not blogging for the N.C. State Fair, I go by Karlie Justus--but Cotton Candy suits me just fine. My earliest memories of the Fair are of the times my parents would bring my brother and I up from Asheville, N.C. for a double dose of the Fair and a N.C. State football game. Fast-forward two decades later, and I'm a public information officer for the deep fried celebration whose must-see Fair attractions include the giant pumpkins, decorated cakes and deep fried Oreos.
