[QUOTE=Arielflies;2986411;I just figured out that they are using the word "fair" to disguise the fact that the chickens boxed up, the hogs hosed down and the cattle tagged were all on their way to market. *sigh* Gotta pretty it up, dont'cha know. Now, since this was filmed in July there could very well have been a County Fair in progress during the shoot, but the end result for the animals would be the same.
If there is a County Fair, will they use that as an activity for the girls? Rural county fairs can be dusty, boring and have car wrecks slamming into eachother for the night time entertainment. But, there are the show-off tents with the feminine arts such as jams and flowers on dispay. I always liked those. I wonder if they'll have a working rodeo at one of the larger dairy farms or ranches? I went to one when I was a child in Oregon and it had clowns and branding and a boy cracking a hard boiled egg on my head. Now, that was fun.[/QUOTE]
I prefer the rural county fairs to the more citified ones where most of it is the carnival and rides. And I think all fairs have the crashing cars part.
I've never heard of a rodeo that had branding as part of it, but maybe you aren't talking about a PRCA sanctioned event?
