Her name was Lilly and I bottle-fed her since she was a baby. She was my favorite.
Cassidy Delong has fond memories of her time in Future Farmers of America and 4-H, of the dairy cow she showed at the fair a couple of years back, and of the people shes met along the way.
Since graduating from high school, Cassidy helps her little brother with his animals, and volunteers as much as she can.
Soon it will be time again for the annual Manatee County Fair. Time for fair food, for livestock, exhibits and the opportunity to make some new memories.
