ALAN BERNER / THE SEATTLE TIMES
For Nelia Presley, of Vancouver, B.C., Mini Mabel is not exactly like the Holsteins she grew up milking in Manitoba. Mini Mabel is a smaller version of big Mabel, and she's at Pike Place Market to promote the Washington State Fair, formerly the Puyallup Fair, and give passers-by a chance to see what milking a cow is like. Mini Mabel will be at the Market through Sept. 1. The fair runs from Sept. 5 through Sept. 21. Mini Mabel produces water that is recycled through a hidden system.
