Strolling of the Heifers - 2010 Part 2


Brattleboro, VT - This is a continuation of my photos from the Strolling of the Heifers. I had a hard time deciding what to post, I took so many photos. So, to save space I made two collages with some of the photos. These are mostly of the banners before each group.


The other collage.


A fuzzy Scottish Highlander.

Jazzy and Birthday.


The FFA float, I was in the FFA(Future Farmers of America)when I was much younger.


The Grafton Village Cheese Float


Not only heifers in this parade, here is a sheep with his lunch around his neck.


The clean up crew, this year dressed as fruits and vegetables.


An impostor


Brattleburros kick ass


Mules are in the parade also.


Two Saxophonists


Goats Leaping for Joy


Some participants needed a little push.



A shopping cart dance by the Co-op.


Some Jazz dancing.


The leader of this group was really having a good time, the photos don't do her justice.


A Chinese Dragon.


Belly Dancers


These kids had to jump rope up hill


"Get down and give me twenty", kids doing pushups. By the end of the parade they must have had quite the workout.


A nice Brown Swiss cow, or at least I think it is.


These were some well trained Oxen; no ropes necessary.


This was the first heifer of the parade.


A stage coach, that is a blast from the past.


This rather tall women was one of the sights at the front of the parade(still don't know what that thing on her nose is???

We really wish we had gone after seeing your photos! What fun! I am daft over cows but just as daft over donkeys and goats! Super photos!

Re: the pink nose She's a Flamingo, her name is Heidi from Matica Arts. I hired her and her husband Joel for the event. They have studied circus arts at the circus school here in Brattleboro. They performed the night before for Gallery Walk, a great pre-parade street party Friday night. Thanks for posting such great photos! Hogs and Cowlicks, the Dairy Godmother
