FAIR TIME IN WALLOWA COUNTY

EASY DOES IT: Tayton LaPointe and his father, Dan, of Clackamas try to feed Reba, the red-headed heifer, an apple at the Kiesecker ranch on Fence Creek along the Imnaha River. Brent Kiesecker, 15, who has a hold on Reba's halter, will show Reba in this week's county fair. Reba looks like a red Holstein but is a cross between a Holstein and a Red Saler.
