Like many animals this weekend, Emma was pretty hot Sunday afternoon. And like some animals, she took a shower to cool off. Unlike most animals, though, her shower came in the form of a hose at the Washington County Ag Expo. Emma, who is less than a year old, is a Scottish highland, a type of beef cow, Gladys Keadle of Sharpsburg said. Emma, owned by Gladys' son, Austin, 8, is in the expo's petting zoo. She hosed her off since it was obvious that Emma was getting warm because she was panting, Gladys Keadle said.
