Here are a bunch of photos I took MANY years ago at the Royal Winter Fair. (Back when you could still get Black & White film!) I always found it so funny that the sheep would wear these little coats. I realize it's to keep them clean for the judging, but I always felt they looked like they were getting ready for a wrestling match.
Here's a behind the scenes look at a cow being groomed with an electric razor.
And anyone who deals with horses knows it's a full-time job keeping them clean.
Here's something you don't see every day, a four horned ram! The photo is a bit blurry but it wasn't very well lit in that place.
A big fat hog waiting to end up as someone's breakfast. I've always wanted to have a pig roast! Maybe when Rich and I get married we can have one!
A cute, fat little bunny. I couldn't eat this guy...he's too cute!
A horse hanging out, waiting in his stall. He looks lonely but I remember him being friendly and letting me pat his fuzzy nose. Horses' noses feel just like velvet.
And of course even then, I was photographing poultry. I know, I know....how can I eat them when I like looking at live ones? I really don't know the answer to that. Maybe because they look so different in the grocery stores without their feathers, feet and heads.
