I just came across a web site for the stabling at the Illinois State Fairgrounds. I was flabbergasted! In a great way.

916 stalls in 28-something stables!

I don't even know if the state I'm in even has a state fair. I cannot imagine a state fairgrounds--or any other venue--having 916 stalls! Or 28 stables!

Wow. I am just blown away. Some of those buildings are over 100 years old and are apparently still being used.

28 stables. 916 stalls. Can you just imagine being there with every stall occupied, all those horses and horse people, all those paddocks in use?
