Waterville Fair and Horse Races

Sunday we went to Waterville for the Douglas County Fair and my favorite, the horse races. It was kind of a gray blustery dusty day, not the best for photos but still I enjoyed it. Rodeo events went on between the races and while they are not my favorite, I did get some good images.
