Draft Show - Day 1

Today was the first day of the Virginia Draft Horse and Mule Association's 2009 show. What a perfect day. The weather was ideal and the organizers, exhibitors and vendors were the friendliest bunch of people anyone could ever hope to meet. Many stopped by TREES' booth to chat about the elder equine, past and present, and pick up a Golden Horseshoe for luck. We'd like to thank everyone involved in this incredible weekend. Can't wait for tomorrow.

Meanwhile, here are just a few photos from today.

The mule classes were very popular. Seemed like they attracted a bigger crowd than the draft horses for much of the day.

An Appaloosa mule!

Is it my turn yet?

This rare fellow, if we understood the Virginia-ized pronunciation of the name, is a Poitevin.

Chillin' between classes.

Do Fjords always travel in packs?

Sunday should be a lot of fun, with the driving classes, log skidding, and more "work related" competitions. Hope to see you there! Thank you to all who stopped to visit and dropped a little change in the jar. The Elders thank you , too.
