Grant County Fair – Dog Day

Posted in Event, Image Post with tags , , , , , , , , , on August 15, 2012 by Art of Photography

Tuesday belonged to the dogs. The Dog Show that is. With beautiful weather, the Grant County dog lovers got together and had a fun evening of friendly competitions.

This was the first Queens events and Grant County has some real beauties!

But mostly this is about the dogs, both in performance and obedience.

The most popular is the performance part of the contest. It starts with a briefing, then walk through, and finally the performance.

Remember, the rides start 5 pm today (Wednesday 8/15/2012). Coming up next is Auto Racing!

Of a total 900 images shot Sunday at the Jr. Horse Judging, 130 look to make the cut. We hope to post as many of these images, as well as the rest of the fair pictures, as possible to the Grant County Fair Website (GrantCountyFairWi.org). In the meantime, while we work on that, here are a few more images from Sunday’s event.

Please go to the website and check out the schedule. I am sure you will see something for almost everyone during this exciting, fun-filled, week!

Grant County Fair Starts

Posted in Image Post with tags , , , , , , , , , , on August 12, 2012 by Art of Photography

This is Grant County”s (Wisconsin) week to have their fair. It starts with Jr. Horse judging but before I go there I have a question for you. If you had a show tractor and needed to get it to the fairground, what would you do? Especially if it is a nice, cool, Wisconsin Sunday?

Now, on to the horses …

Think horses know they are at a sporting event?

Of course for any event, you have to have a program …

and equipment …

And what is any competition without an award …

You want to always look your best when you compete …

However, beauty is not skin deep …


(I really liked this horse!)

and like any sport it has difficult and dangerous elements …


But these kids were strong and never backed off

Like the Olympics, today was a great day because of great competitors doing what they love to do most.
