There’s a cattle/farm show in this section of the world known as Agribition. It’s mostly cattle, but in past years, with the expansion of several buildings on the ground, it has grown to include quite a few equipment exhibitors, and various representatives of farm-related companies. It used to include a dairy show, but that ended a few years ago.
We went today for a little while. We got there in time to see the draft horse hitch show demonstration. They had a competition last year, but for whatever reason, didn’t this year. So they just brought out a couple of different hitch teams and showed what they would do in a competition and how it would be judged. It was neat. Then one of the owners, or daughter of the owner, of the horses, showed that Belgians can just be used as riding horses too. It ran and trotted so smoothly for such a big horse. Then they brought out a foal, which was very large for just a baby, and then we saw miniature horse chuckwagon races. Those little guys run really fast for their size. And then we had caramel apples. Yum. A very good day.
