253 - Recessionary Economics


Cancelled horse sale.  Fewer exhibitors.  Empty rows.  The recession affects everything.

This is one of the horse barns at the stock show.  While the stalls at the far end are occupied, there were far too many aisles that looked like this one, something I've never seen in all the years I've attended.  Empty spaces, sure.  Empty rows?  No.
