Freedonia Photo #4
Still continuing to clear out my photos and desk from my life-changing trip to Freedonia and came across this picture. Because of the sophistication of Freedonia's animals, it is not uncommon to see role reversal. For instance, a popular annual event in Freedonia is the Sadie Hawkins National Fair, where cows, dogs, and pigs throughout Freedonia invite human friends to compete in a simple series of events that range from sack races to obedience tests to beauty contests. I took this photo on the first day of the Fair during check-in, when the animals were leading their humans through the entrance gate and getting their numbers. This girl later went on to win the obedience contest.
