  1. What a wonderful faire! I love the bagpipes, the Irish dancing, the description of an ox (never knew that!) and the tin craft :) Everyone's costumes are also very beautiful. xoxo

    1. Wasn't that interesting about he ox? I did not know this either.

  2. I read a little more on the sign about Ardan the ox. Ardan has a form of dwarfish and is very smart! He knew all his commands by five months of age :) Interesting that the dwarfish is passed through the mother to the bull calves and is found in the Irish Dexter breed.

    1. That is what I thought too. We saw him in action and he did do a good job in following commands.
