On September 21st, the Ecology Academy at THMS went to the Common Ground Fair. When we went to the Common Ground Fair, there was lots to see, but what I was really into seeing was the livestock. I really like animals, especially mammals and birds, so I checked out the cows, sheep, goats, rabbits, guinea pigs, chickens, ducks, guinea hens, and the turkeys. There were many stalls with large and small cows that ate hay, many different goats that were grouped together, and sheep that were either woolly or shaved. There was a barn with many rows of cages full of rabbits and guinea pigs that were many different colors and sizes. Another barn was full of birds, which were the many different breeds of chickens, striped and speckled guinea hens, ducks that were sitting in their cages, and large cages with even larger turkeys inside them. There were a lot of animals at the Common Ground Fair, and I am really glad that I was able to see all of them!
