Everywhere you go at Agribition cattle, horses and even goats are getting primped for their shows. It's like a giant animal beauty shop!
Another common site. It's amazing how huge they are up close.
Me and Breakaway, a Solid Black Angus bull.
The Agri-Ed area, which is full of cool and interactive exhibits for kids.
The Agri-Ed area is fun for grown-ups too.
Me and "Bridgette", an interactive puppet who tells kids about the importance of Agriculture.
A chick that is less than a few hours old.
Todd Bishop, a trick roper.
Sally Bishop and the Wild West Show. She is amazing! These four horses are not tied together and she rides them standing up with each foot on a different horse...crazy!
More Sally Bishop, trick rider.
After watching her amazing show, I wanted to be more like Sally Bishop, so I thought I better try on a few hats to see which one worked the best for me.
Pink is cute.
Now that's a cowboy hat.
Saddles, saddles and more saddles...
Tim Hortons, a VERY popular choice for coffee at Agribition...and in every other city across Canada.
YES, beef on a bun...yum.
FINALLY, Mini-Donuts! I was so excited...
Here's where the magic happens.
They're almost ready!

You could have nails just like her!
Another booth. There is such a huge variety of them.
Heaven. My feet in an Accu-point Stimulator (fancy name for foot-massasger) and mini donuts in hand.
The annual ceremony of the Burning of the Brand.
2010 is the 40th Anniversary of Agribition, an amazing milestone for an event of this magnitude.
Ford representatives were on location offering test drives of their trucks. If they were able to get 60 people to test drive before 2:00 that day they would donate $4,000 to the Regina Food Bank!
Ready to do my part to help the Regina Food Bank.
My boring old belt...
One of the much more exciting belts you can purchase at Agribition.
A rock wall in a trade show booth?!?
