"Initially, I thought I would be riding the roller coasters and making delicious carnival food, but to my surprise, I am in charge of working with the livestock today - namely sheep.
It's one of main attractions at this year's fair.
My job is straight forward - tend to the sheep as they arrive at the fair.
One of the first families arrives from Joplin, Missouri, ready to unload their animals. So I thought I would lend a hand, and walk their cargo to their pens.
They are a bit pushy.
Once inside - I spread out the hay for them.
Just when I think I'm done - it's time for a bath. Not for me - the sheep.
One of the helpers, Nicole, showed me the ropes - but she had a tough time keeping me dry.
After getting soaked, I bid farewell to Nicole and throw in the towel.
I think I'm more cut out for the weather gig.”
