Last weekend's crop of photos, part 2

From the fish day festival we drove to Hrafnagil, near Akureyri, to attend a big handicraft and agricultural show. As before, these are only thumbnails.



Once we entered the show area, we heard roosters crowing in the distance and went to look. There was a long row of cages with hens and roosters, all belonging to the lovely and colourful Icelandic breed, and in fact there was a beauty contest going on. Unfortunately all the rooster photos I took were out of focus, but here are a couple of hens:

  

  



Among the other animales were goats, sheep and a sulky mare with a foal.
The foal was a lot friendlier than mom:

  
This mountain king seemed at ease in his pen, and loved to get scratched between his horns:
