2012 International Plowing Match
Saturday, April 21, was the annual plowing match held in our town in Berthusen Park The park is mostly wooded picnic area, but there are some open fields to the west where there is space and tables for flying radio-controlled airplanes and plenty of space also for the plowing match. Last year's match was held on an overcast and rainy day, but this year it was sunny and warm and I returned home with some sunburn. There were about 20 teams of draft horses and one riding plow. There were also a good number of women competitors. I did not stay long enough to see the results, since the match goes for four or five hours. There are many different categories and prizes, but I go more to see the horses and admire them. These are some of my pictures.
And a few of the radio-controlled planes:
