The rain had little effect on the animal exhibits, except that the horse jumping exhibit was postponed to another time. Since the animal exhibits are indoors and the show ring is covered you could enjoy this part of the fair as much as a sunny day.
There are three animal exhibits: small animals, large farm animals and horses. In the small animal building you could see chicken eggs hatching in a small incubator, we tried to photograph the hatching, however, the cover was quite clouded, so the pictures are too.
There were some great looking animals at this fair, regardless of size. The Houghton Fair may have a few less exhibits, as farming becomes less prevalent, but the quality of the exhibits is excellent. So too is the method used to displayed and present the exhibit.
