McDonald’s drive-thru had some horses, ‘E-I-E-I ... whoa!’


Two Wyoming boys, a little bored over their holiday break, saddled up for a trip to McDonald’s and a goat followed along: “E-I-E-I ... whoa!”

Joel Perez, 15, and Trajen Collins, 13, rode their horses into town recently, not an uncommon sight itself in the small city of Powell.

But usually goats don’t tag along and there are no fast-food stops.

The teens said they didn’t plan to take the animal, but apparently it was up for an adventure, too.

“We just wanted to get out of the house and do something,” Perez told the Powell Tribune.

The goat “just started walking right behind us.”

Perez ordered some sandwiches, but nothing for the horses.

Collins said they dismissed the idea of getting a salad for the goat because it had eaten some grass earlier.

No word on whether they considered a “kid’s meal.”

The teens stopped by other stores to get a bowl and water for the animals.

Perez and Collins said they didn’t get in trouble with their parents and that they would be up for another horse ride into town.

“When it’s warmer,” Perez said.

Pennsylvania Farm Show features half-ton butter sculpture, a tribute


To signaling the 2017 Pennsylvania Farm Show was about to open, the event’s annual butter sculpture was revealed.

The sculpture, which was unveiled Jan. 5, is called “A Culture of Stewardship.” It pays tribute to dairy farmers, who the artists say are stewards of the land, air, water and community.

About a half-ton of butter was used to create the piece, which shows a landscape of farms and undulating hillsides giving way to forest-covered peaks.

Husband and wife suburban Philadelphia sculptor team Jim Victor and Marie Pelton say they think the piece uniquely depicts the characteristics of Pennsylvania.

The farm show at the Pennsylvania Farm Show complex in Harrisburg, which is open to the public, wraps up Saturday.
