At Rest


While touring the various animal barns at the Fair I was struck by how tightly many of the animals, especially the cattle, were bound to their stalls. I suppose that the intention is to limit their movements, but it didn't seem to be too comfortable for the animal. This one seems pretty content, though.

  2. I suppose that if they free themselves they could be if not outright dangerous, at least of some inconvenience...

  4. I wouldn't mind a nice stall of hay to nap in right about now. It's so hard to recover from long-distance driving.

  5. Around here there are usually owners in the stalls with them and they are seldom left alone. I would think it would be that way everywhere.

    This lovely animal. Well you did a great portrait here.

  7. I don't like to see animals confined too tightly, just for our convenience .. but they are certainly very beautiful, and I suppose one must have an eye to public safety.
