I always feel so sad after coming home from a livestock show because I know the the only purpose for the livestock most of the time is to kill them so that I can have my barbecued beef, barbecued chicken, barbecued turkey……. Maybe if I quit eating……..

Following are some pictures and three flash videos taken yesterday of the livestock at the 2013 San Diego County Fair.

This next cow, a steer named Spot, was the biggest cow I have ever seen in my life. I’m going to put him in the few thousand pounds category. He was huge!

Spot is an 11-year-old Shorthorn X. He was a 4-H show steer in 2003 and was purchased at the Junior Livestock Auction and given a pardon by “Grandpa Bob.” Spot now lives the good life grazing in a lovely pasture in the Valley Center boondocks. You can follow Spot’s adventures on Facebook.

Following is a flash video of Spot.

As much as I liked Spot, and all the livestock, it was the Pig family which won my heart yesterday. Two flash videos of the Pig family acting like, well, pigs:
