a night at the pne fair

pne fair vancouver 001

With a little help from our house guest who is working at a coffee stand within the PNE exhibition, we decided to go and check out all the buzz last night. We ate hot dogs, elephant ears (aka 'whale tails', 'beaver tails', or a flat piece of fried dough with cinnamon and sugar on top) and just walked around and enjoyed the sights.

There was a barn full of some interesting breeds of farm animals and also lots and lots of babies. The Clydesdale horses (above) were really fascinating. The large one, second from the right, was eating the hay of both of his neighbours as well as his own — big bully. 

The calf, below was apparently born only an hour before. (Just want to point out that even though the cow is looking at me, I am zoomed in quite a bit here, I am not right in the face of the poor tired lady.)

And then we were done. Maybe we'll go back someday and actually go on the rides... maybe.
