A Great Heritage Days Weekend!

We had a wonderful Heritage Days weekend!

The Lloyd Wood Show was excellent, the food from local vendors was great and the weather was perfect.  Many people came to enjoy the evening and several asked if we would have him back next year.  At our follow up meeting last night we voted to do that very thing.  So mark you calendar's for next year's celebration.

The Horse Show was amazing!  I am always in awe of the beauty of the magnificent 6 horse draft hitches.  Such power!  I seem to prefer the gorgeous black percherons, but all the breeds are beautiful!

It was at my first draft horse show that I discovered you can actually ride these huge horses!

The mule team brought by Dr. Hunt from Michigan was amazingly maneuverable.  Here the driver is demonstrating a very sharp turn.

The horse/mule farming demonstrations took us back to the days of our ancestors. 

The goat milking was popular with the kids (and parents).

As was the donkey ride.

David Davis, a horse trainer/musician/cowboy preacher performed Roman riding and showed us some of the tricks he has taught his horses.  (For any of you nearby, he is going to give a performance/concert at Linn Park here in Martinsville on August 12.

The minis brought in the flag.

As you can see, if you love animals, there was something for everyone.
