I went and got to talk to the Clydesdale horses, including one whose name is
"Bud -- which I found very amusing. Marcus and I also got to pet and talk to
"Doc", the Dalmatian who travels with the Clydesdale horses. I know, us
petting Dalmatians-- what a surprise.
I also got to talk to and pet some of the pigs. ... Reminds me of a quote
attributed to Winston Churchill......"A dog looks up to you, a cat looks
down on you, but a pig... a pig treats you like an equal."
