Final Views

Today I conclude this visit to the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum with some final perspectives. I am also adding this post into Tom's Barn Collective theme for this week. This looks at the Learning Centre. As you can see, by the time I was departing, the skies were considerably more clear than when I had arrived that day.

This view looking south takes in some of the buildings that are part of the Experimental Farm's day to day operations, beyond the bounds of the Museum area.

Here we have views of the Small Animal Barn.

Earlier in the series I showed you an old wagon. That one's in the background of this shot, while another wagon takes centre stage. These are near the Cereal Barn, which is in the following shot.

I stopped by the enclosure again where the horses were, near the Horse and Cattle Barn.

And I close off with two final views of the Dairy Barn. The first includes the annex section with the Soil Lab. The second, from the south, includes the picnic area. I hope you have enjoyed this tour.


  1. That small animal barn is one of the biggest barns I've ever seen. Love the horsies and that gorgeous wagon! Thanks for sharing these photos of this wonderful place! My sympathies to all Canadians over the tragic events which occurred yesterday in Toronto. There are crazies everywhere!

  2. The rusty red painted barns against the blue sky look lovely.
    I agreee with Lowell, I shocked when I heard about the tradgic news yesterday, and found it hard to imagine that something like that could happen on the streets of Toronto.

  3. Red painted barns, so special. We haven't. It seems all is made of wood there?

    Great horses! I hope you are safe. This early morning my daughter was saying: ..."Mama, look at the news, there's an attack in Toronto." I think there is a large distance between where you are and Toronto but... I was thinking about you. Wish you all the best.

  4. Interesting post, but I love the most this lovely horse.

  5. Gostei do final desta magnifica reportagem que fui acompanhando.

  6. Beautiful pictures. Had a good trip along with you!

  7. You, indeed, have helped us learn so much through this series. Wondering what tomorrow will bring.


  8. A very enjoyable and informative tour. These horses are magnificent.

  9. @Lowell: you're welcome.

    @Rosemary: these things happen, which is a pretty weird way to describe it.

    @Aritha: I think a lot of it's wood. Possibly some steel in the frames for newer buildings. The Learning Centre is largely brick. Fortunately there are quite a few hours in distance between here and there, but some years back I was just a few blocks away when that gunman killed a sentry at the War Memorial and attacked Parliament Hill.

    @NatureFootstep: thank you!

    @Orvokki: the horses are quite distinctive.

    @Francisco: thanks!

    @Weekend Windup: thank you.

    @Janis: I have a few days of winter to spring comparisons coming up.

    @Tom: it certainly is.

    @Mildred: they are indeed.

    @Marie: it certainly was.

  10. I think the horses were enjoying the clearing skies too.

  11. I enjoyed reading your last few posts and seeing the barns, cows and those beautiful horses.

  12. I love those horses. And the buildings of course!

  13. It was a very interesting tour during the last days, William.

  14. What an incredible barn and I love the horse!

  15. This was a great series. I've enjoyed it.

  16. @Janey: they certainly seemed to like sunlight!

    @Happyone: thank you! It's a marvelous museum and working farm.

    @RedPat: I do too.

    @Jan: I've enjoyed showing it, and it took care of the bulk of April posts for me, which was a nice bonus.

    @Jo: thanks!

    @Red: I've enjoyed showing it.

  17. This was a good photo shoot for you, William. I've enjoyed it!

  18. Love the horse photos and great buildings too!

    Happy Week to you,

  19. Beautiful pictures.
    I loved meeting you.

  20. This is another wonderful series William. On a sadder note I am so sorry to hear what happened up there. My heartfelt condolences to everyone involved.

  21. Photo #3 is my favourite. It's because of the geometry of the barn.

  22. @Jeanie: I have enjoyed showing it.

    @Carol: thank you!

    @Janicce: thanks!

    @Marleen: they are.

    @Denise: it is quite a tragedy.

    @Klara: that works for me.

  23. The dairy barn is gorgeous as are those draft horses!

  24. What a great looking barn and the horses are beautiful.

  25. I've enjoyed this series William, thank you.
    Lovely to see the old wagon, and aren't horses wonderful creatures.

    All the best Jan

  26. Good looking horse. The wagon still look like an older model to me, but then I haven't been on a farm for over ten years.

  27. What a wonderful facility. I especially love the shots of the horses.

  28. An interesting place to visit. So many things to see and I like the horse and wagon!

  29. Have enjoyed this series very much William. Love to see the farm animals. They all look so healthy and well looked after.

  30. I like the hipped roof on one building, and the small cupolas on the ridge of the big barn. Huge horses! A tribute to hard, righteous work.

  31. @Michelle: I agree.

    @Bill: definitely.

    @Jan: you're welcome.

    @Mari: it's been awhile since I've lived among farms.

    @Norma: these are good ones.

  32. @Kay: thank you.

    @Nancy: it was quite a visit.

    @Lady Fi: I enjoyed it.

    @Grace: they do, yes.

    @Cloudia: thanks!
