In the final act, just after Farmer Hoggett latches the pen, there are three long shot views of the field, two from deep in the grandstand and one from the view of Rex and Flye.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

The Boss uses the phone on the fax to call about the competition, yet the power doesn't get restored to his house until he's at the competition. - Telephones do not need the electricity to be functioning in order to work. Phone lines provide independent power to keep communication lines open, even without main power working. While the fax machine would not work without power, the telephone could still be used.
