Racing Greyhound pups in a barrow
A wheelbarrow filled with racing greyhound pups at the G.R.A. Staffordshire breeding ground, prior to transfer to the kennels at Northaw, Middlesex. At Northaw, the process of training for dog racing at White City begins, including wearing a collar, learning to lead, breaking from the trap until the polished racing greyhound is ready to flash round the White City Racecourse at nearly 40 m.p.h

The Cawston Ostrich Farm - South Pasadena, California
The Cawston Ostrich Farm - South Pasadena, Los Angeles, California, USA. A rather dapper worker at the farm loads his wheelbarrow full of ostrich eggs. The average weight of the eggs is 3 to 3 1/2 pounds. They take 42 days to hatch. One ostrich egg is the equivalent to 18 - 24 chicken eggs (and taste similar). To boil takes 2 hours and the shell needs to be broken with a small hammer!
