Salon de l’Agriculture: Paris 2017

Last weekend I felt a burning need to talk with some cows and sheeps, so I went to the International Agriculture Salon at Paris expo center Porte de Versailles. They told me the star of the show would be a Bretonne Pie Noir cow named Fine. But first, I have to pass by heaps of exotic fruits and mouth-watering foods.

Camels? The animal stand were just next to the saucisson stand, you can smell many things when you eat your chorizo…

The cow Fine, finally. She was indeed like a star. Lots of audience surrounded her and called her name. “Fine, look here! Fine, please!” Occasionally, she would turn her head to look into your soul.

Young cows – adorable bunch of sleepy babies:

Goats – they do look smart and their eyes were like they’re plotting something, now I understand why there are always plotting goats in folk stories:
