Unknown Presenter--Circus Berolina--2009

Here's a net arena, who's diamond pattern is made with the nic press sleeves, as we have discussed in past threads. Recall me pointing out that it leaves "silver dot's" in any photo? As far as I know, and correct me if I am wrong, Hawthorn and Ringling are the only ones who had their net cages done by Carlos Farfan in the woven pattern, without the need for nic press sleeves. Carlos would do one with the sleeves, if it was insisted on, as it was much cheaper, but he would not recommend it, as it became a terror to repair. The split at the side is unusual, and how it is laced is very unattractive. Normally a net cage is one piece, with the split attaching at the back of the arena, to the three sections with ring's that slide up and down. Ringling's cage used to be split like this, when the animal were let in through the side of the cage, instead of the back, where the door's were, so as not to block the view of the public, with the rolling cages. Now that they are one ring, the cage is turned to the long end of the building and the animals come in through the back, and they no longer use the split in the side.
