The hot times in Florida moved south January 9 as the Fox Lea Farm Winter Circuit got started in Venice.

Most of the exhibitors had been in Tampa earlier for the Florida Gulf Coast Circuit, loading up their trailers on the last day and pulling south to the coastal community of Venice.

Temperatures continued to be record-breaking, and exhibitors donned shorts and flip-flops when they weren’t in the show pen. When they were done for the day, they drove a few blocks west to the beaches of Venice on the Gulf of Mexico.

The Fox Lea Farm Winter Circuit continues through January 13.
