Horse Pulls II

Cindy and I recently attended horse pulls in the little town of Collins WI.  This was the second time I had seen the pulls and am amazed of the size and strength of the beautiful animals.

Between the pulls, I was able to talk to some of the drivers, they were all very friendly and answer questions while they waited for their turn to pull.  I also had met up with an old co-worker who remembered his father having horses on the farm and the trouble he would get into riding the horses bare back, and lots of other stories he was telling about growing up with the horses.

After each round of pulls, more weight was stacked on the sled forcing the teams to work harder to complete their pulls of 27 and a half feet.

It was a fun, but very hot July day, we are planning on attending more in the future.
